In this tutorial we cover some of the problems that can come up when pasting content from one slide or template to another.

Users will often expect their content to look exactly the same when they paste it as it did when they copied it. This is usually pretty easy to achieve with the Keep Source Formatting button (which we touch on) but in some specific situations, that button will not be an option. When this happens, the formatting painter will also not work to fix the issue.

In this tutorial, we talk about what causes that to happen and how to get around the problem.
