If you copy more than one slide from the Slide Sorter and paste it into a non-PowerPoint file, such as a Word document, you see only the first slide. If you double-click the image of the first slide, PowerPoint starts and runs a slide show of the slides that you copied.


PowerPoint provides two kinds of OLE objects: slides and presentations. Both types of objects appear in your Word document as a single slide. You create a PowerPoint slide object by copying a single slide from the Slide Sorter and pasting it into another document. You create a PowerPoint presentation object by copying several slides from the slide sorter and pasting them into another document.


To have more than one slide image appear in your Word document, copy the slides one at a time from Slide Sorter view.


If you want an image of every slide in a presentation sent to a Word document, you can click Write Up on the Tools menu in PowerPoint.

For more information about the Write-up feature, click Contents And Index on the Help menu, click the Index tab in PowerPoint Help, type the following text
and then double-click the selected text to go to the "Create speaker notes and handouts" topic.
