I've got a problem here - I'm trying to copy existing slides from a PowerPoint 2003 presentation into a new PowerPoint 2010 presentation. It copies across fine, but it also dumps the slide layout from the PP2003 file into the master of the PP2010 file - which i'm trying to avoid. The old slide layouts are not valid with our corporate standard any more and shouldn't be in the new file.
Is there a way to copy across the old slide WITHOUT bringing its slide layout across into PP2010 too? I have been told that you could do this between MS Office 2003 presentations by copying to and from the Slide Sorter view - but this doesn't seem to work in PP2010.
Using 'Use Destination Theme' still copies across the old slide's layout into the new set of layouts and this is what I am trying to avoid.
Any help on this issue is appreciated.
