    I would guess that by copy and paste it may be taking on the default formats in your master slide?

    Try the "normal" method of "Insert" from the menu, and specifying the file that contains the slides you want to use.

    If PP 97 does not have that option, I apologise as I only have PP 2003 now. I have used 97 and have never had a problem in transferring slides between presentations. Wish I could remember more about it.

    I believe kiwiguy's answer is correct. Let me know if it doesn't help. I've got 97 here...
