Not a clean solution, but you might try saving as .RTF, opening the
file with WinWord, and then using WinWord's "To Powerpoint" macro or
saving it again as .RTF and using Powerpoint to import that, instead.
If you had to do a lot of it, and this procedure worked, you could
create a WordBasic macro that simplified the procedure.
