Formatted Text Display in Embedded Excel Workbook


G

Guest

If I enter text in a cell in Excel, change the cell formatting font color to
red and font to bold, then copy the cell and paste special into PowerPoint as
an Excel worksheet object. The text displays as bold but color black, not
red. When I double-click the embedded worksheet the correctly displays as
bold and red. When I close the embedded worksheet the text then displays as
bold and red in PowerPoint.

Word appears to display the text correctly when initially pasted.

Is there a way to make the text display correctly the first time it's pasted
into PowerPoint?

Drew,

Works fine here (bold red font maintained when pasting as an excel object).

I'm using PowerPoint 2002 SP3, and Excel 2002 SP3. How about you?

I have Office 2003 SP1. I've also seen the same behavior with Office 2003
(no SP).

I'am having the same problem here, using PPT 2003 sp2 and Excel 2003 sp2.

Is your default printer driver a b/w or color printer? Try a color printer
driver.
