MS Powerpoint - if you cannot copy paste a link try this

 I tried and tried to insert a hyperlink in MS PowerPoint. Such a thing ought to be a no-brainer. But no. As usual either Mac or Microsoft or both in a sinister conspiration decided that this simple task shoul seem impossible.

But there is a stupid wordaround:

  • SHIFT + CMD + V
  • Insert unformatted text
  • Now you can paste the link string
  • Copy the #€%&/& link again
  • Now you can paste the link in the link insert thing
Don't tell me that the window based programs are more easy to use than a terminal. What a silly waste of time. 

PS: Please, don't tell Mac or Microsoft about this hack ...
