The information in this article applies to:

SYMPTOMS
========

If you use the Paste Link option to paste an object into Publisher 2.0
from Microsoft PowerPoint or Microsoft Paintbrush, and then you update
the object in PowerPoint or Paintbrush and close the application
without saving the updates, Publisher 2.0 shows the updated
information from PowerPoint or Paintbrush. The updates will continue
to show in Publisher until the object is double-clicked to edit it. At
that point, the object will be updated with the original information.
