Hi,

As I understand you are unable to copy and paste images in PowerPoint.

 

I would need more information on the issue:

1. Does the issue occur with particular PowerPoint presentation or any PowerPoint presentation?

2. Are you unable to copy and paste a particular image in PowerPoint?

 

Create a new presentation, copy and paste the image in new presentation and check if it pastes fine.

 

Provide us more information on the issue to help us assist you further.

Thank you.

Since upgrading Office from 64-bit 2010 to 2013, I'm no longer able to paste Visio objects into PowerPoint.  When I do, I receive the message::

 

There isn't enough memory to perform the operation.

 

This never happened with 2010 Office.  I close all applications except PowerPoint and Visio yet still the problem persists.

 

Is there any workaround besides downgrading to Office 2010?

 

I run Windows 7 64-bit latest service packs and required updates.  I have 8.00 GB RAM (7.88 usable).

I confirmed this issue ALWAYS happens with Office 2013.

 

I am able to copy and paste/embed the same Visio document in the same PowerPoint document using PowerPoint 2010 and Vision 2010.

 

So when can we expect a patch for Office 2013?

 

Thanks!

Any fix for this yet?  Once I have my documents completed with Office 2013 powerpoint and visio, I have to launch the previous versions of both applications to paste/embed.

 

Thanks for any help on this!

Have you tried saving and closing the Visio Project, then trying to add it to your PowerPoint Presentation?
