  • I have many talents, but working with Illustrator (at the time of this post anyway) is not one of them. I am, however, awesome with PowerPoint, and drawing/editing shapes with PowerPoint. But sometimes, there is a shape or vector graphic from a popular stock photo site that I'd like to edit and use in PowerPoint. And editing the graphic in PowerPoint, (for me anyway), would be faster than editing the graphic in Illustrator--especially considering the file is going to end up in PowerPoint eventually anyway.

Well, lucky for us, there is an easy way to convert most illustrator graphics into editable PowerPoint shapes, or rather what is known as a "Microsoft Office Drawing Object."
