Thanks, but not on my powerpoint (some old version on Mac).
Certainly stockholm syndrom with me and powerpoint, but
all my experience has also been that all this vector stuff never
works. Even when i ask powerpoint to export as image, it doesn't
get exactly rendered as what i see on screen. For the last
research papers, i simply took screenshot of what i saw.

IMHO there is too much fundamentalism in our tooling groups
(or whoever makes policies for them). 

Cheers
