When you paste a slide from PowerPoint into FrameMaker, it will be 
inserted as an OLE object (Object Linking and Embedding). And sometimes, 
OLE objects don't behave well.

As Pete said, you may want to export your slides as png files and import 
those by reference into FrameMaker. Or you can create a PDF file of the 
PowerPoint Presentation and import the pages of this PDF into FrameMaker.

Good luck.
