SYMPTOMS

When you copy a text box on a PowerPoint slide and then paste it into a slide in another presentation, or into another program, such as Microsoft Word, the font changes unexpectedly.

CAUSE

This problem occurs if you have applied Microsoft Office 2000 Service Pack 2 (SP-2) and you do the following:
  1. Copy a text frame on a slide master and then paste it into a slide (slide A).
  2. Copy the text frame from slide A and paste it into a second presentation (slide B).
  3. Copy the text frame from slide B and paste it into a third presentation.
The problem occurs because the font properties for the slide master in the second presentation differ from the font properties for the slide master in the first presentation.
