Remarks

Use the ViewType property to set the view for a window before pasting the Clipboard contents into it. The following table shows what you can paste into each view.

Into this view You can paste the following from the Clipboard
Slide view or notes page view Shapes, text, or entire slides. If you paste a slide from the Clipboard, an image of the slide will be inserted onto the slide, master, or notes page as an embedded object. If one shape is selected, the pasted text will be appended to the shape's text; if text is selected, the pasted text will replace the selection; if anything else is selected, the pasted text will be placed in it's own text frame. Pasted shapes will be added to the top of the z-order and won't replace selected shapes.
Outline view Text or entire slides. You cannot paste shapes into outline view. A pasted slide will be inserted before the slide that contains the insertion point.
Slide sorter view Entire slides. You cannot paste shapes or text into slide sorter view. A pasted slide will be inserted at the insertion point or after the last slide selected in the presentation.
