In MS Word, there is an option to choose the pasting behavior between the same application and different applications. It's under the Office button->word options->advanced.

However I don't see the same option for Powerpoint. Is there one available? I hate it when they don't make it consistent between apps.

Unfortunately, the answer to your question is No.

By using Paste Special option, you can choose between keeping the source formatting or pasting text only. This is your only chance to have control over Paste behavior in Powerpoint.

BTW I was asking for powerpoint, not outlook. But I suppose your answer is applicable to Powerpoint. Thanks. – huggie May 24 '10 at 10:50
