Text within a specific document, presentation or Web page will have its own typeface, color, and font size. When you copy text with different formatting into your own slides, PowerPoint will automatically copy the text with its original typeface, color, and font size. However, you may want the new text to match the formatting in slide that you are pasting it into to. This is where the Paste Special function comes into play.
Once you copy the text from the original document or from the Web, open the destination slide. From the Edit menu, click Paste Special. The Paste Special dialog box will immediately appear. From the list of options, select Unformatted Text and click OK.
