Powerpoint link not working

Postby Danny_Bachman » Fri Jul 28, 2017 1:58 pm

Eviews 10 seems to have lost the ability to link charts in a PPT. I copy the chart, but when I try to past (using the "paste special" menu) it no longer gives me the option to link the way it did in Eviews 9. The chart is properly named in the workfile.

OK, new week, it works just fine. Will post if any further problems arise.

Nope. There's still no Paste Special copying into Powerpoint 2016.

I took a quick look at EViews OLE in EViews 10 and it all seems in working order...

I did notice that Office context menus look different now for some reason. I don't see Paste Special in the right-click menu option anymore. I had to go to the Home ribbon tab / Clipboard group / and click on the Paste down arrow and then select Paste Special in my PowerPoint 2013.

Steve,

I can confirm that works.
