Pasting transparent Viso diagrams into Powerpoint

It used to be that if you wanted to paste a nice clean vector based Visio image into a PowerPoint slide you could in Visio and then just on your PowerPoint slide. Microsoft messed this up somewhere down the road with either Visio 2007 or PowerPoint 2007. If you try that now you get you image but it's on a white background instead of a transparent background reflecting your PowerPoint design. The secret is to but then in PowerPoint select the drop down next to the 'PASTE' menu and 'PASTE SPECIAL' and click OK. Weird.
