Windows 7: Paste Visio object into PowerPoint: Not enough memroy

Paste Visio object into PowerPoint: Not enough memroy

I am trying to paste a Visio object into a PowerPoint presentation. The reasons for wanting to paste an object include:
  1. The object can be updated
  2. The quality is better (no intermediate conversion to a raster image)
  3. It is the 'right' way to do things
But, this is not working! When I click 'Paste Special->Microsoft Visio Drawing Object', I get 'There isn't enough memory to perform the operation'.

I am using Office 2010 beta. The Visio document is ~6 MB and the PowerPoint presentation is ~2MB. My computer has 8 GB of memory and only 3.3 GB are in use. Currently, Visio is using 162 MB, PowerPoint is using 185 MB, and (humorously enough), Windows Explorer is using 111 MB.

This is clearly a bug. What can be done to get the Visio object into the PowerPoint presentation?

p.s. A few minutes later, and I am able to paste a different Visio drawing into the presentation, but still cannot paste the first.

Hmm, weird, I had no issues doing just that in a database project I did earlier this semester. Then again, I am not sure about the sizes of either (pretty sure my Visio Drawing was not nearly as large as yours, as mine was a Table Structure dump taken directly from an Access Database, so was smaller, IIRC).

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

Good suggestion- that worked! (What was strange was that the Visio copied perfectly into Word...)

PowerPoint is always a bit freakish like that. Glad you got it working.
