PPT4: Cannot See Embedded Option in Paste Special Dialog Box

PSS ID Number: Q107110 Article last modified on 07-08-1998




The information in this article applies to:

  • == Microsoft PowerPoint for the Macintosh, version 4.0 ==


When you click Paste Special on the Edit menu, the Embedded option is not present.


The Embedded option will not appear in the Paste Special dialog box if either of the following conditions is true:

  • The application that the object or text was copied from may not support object linking and embedding (OLE). If so, PowerPoint cannot embed the object or text into a presentation.


  • The OLE capabilities may be disabled in PowerPoint. Check to ensure that the Shared Code Manager and associated files are located in the Extensions folder.

NOTE: To determine if OLE is installed properly run Microsoft Graph. If Graph does not run, OLE is probably not installed correctly. Try re- installing PowerPoint.


Method 1: If the Application the Text Was Copied from Doesn’t Support OLE

In the Paste Special dialog box, select Picture or Text to paste the contents of the Clipboard.

Method 2: If OLE is not installed properly

Rerun the PowerPoint Setup program in Maintenance Mode and click Reinstall.
