If this is on a Mac, somebody found a fix for this but the method is as follows. Open a new document, make an object and drag that object to the desktop so a picture clipping file is made. Then try to copy/paste your object from PP.
Thanks for the suggestion. Yes I am using a Mac, (10.5.7), I just tried it and same result, nothing pastes in Illustrator. Just to make sure I followed your recommendation properly:
1. Create the diagram in PPT
2. Select the diagram and drag to desktop to create the clipping image
3. Return to PPT, with the diagram selected, select Copy
4. Go to Illustrator and select Paste
Is that correct?
Open a new document in AI. Create an object and drag to the desktop. Then open PP and copy the opject and paste into the AI file.
Finally works! Thanks!!
