If you copy a color graphic from MacDraw II and paste it into Microsoft PowerPoint, it may appear black and white, rather than color. There is an option in MacDraw II that controls this.


In MacDraw II, click Preferences on the Layout menu. In the Preferences dialog box, select the option for Color Clipboard. This allows you to copy color information to the Clipboard.

In MacDraw II, version 1.1 or later, you can save the document in the PICT2 format. To open the PICT2 file in PowerPoint 98, point to Picture on the Insert menu, and then click From File. In PowerPoint 4.0, click Picture on the Insert menu.
