 From an Rgui graphics window (windows() device), Ctrl-W will save the current graph to the clipboard as a metafile; Ctrl-C will save as a bitmap. In PPt, Ctrl-V will paste either into a blank spot on a slide.

The metafile is a Windows vector spec that will be sharper and smaller. However, I have had trouble when viewing them on different PCs with different fonts installed. Bitmaps will get around that but have all the usual limitations of ... bitmaps.
