How to save a shape in Illustrator so it can be editable in PowerPoint 2016 (MAC OS). I should be able to recolour and it has to scalable on re-sizing.
Save your shape from Illustrator as .EMF file.
Go to PowerPoint -> Insert a picture -> select your .emf file and click open.
- At this point it will act as a picture. You will have to right click the shape -> Group -> Ungroup.
- A prompt will appear asking you if you want to convert it. Click yes and after Ungroup it one more time.
- You will see that the shape has a transparent shape/background. Delete that and group the elements again (if there are more than one).
You can copy/paste from Illustrator into MS Word, then copy/paste from MS Word into PowerPoint. Then you can right-click and "edit picture" to break it apart, recolor, etc. It will be fully scalable. Unfortunately, Powerpoint doesn't support copy/paste directly from Illustrator. (At least 2010 version doesn't.)
Edit: As joojaa has pointed out, you CAN paste directly from Illustartor into Powerpoint, but you have to right-click and paste as a picture. Thanks for the tip, joojaa!
