Does anyone know how to export a page of icons from Illustrator into Powerpoint and have them remain individual pieces of art? When I export, paste special, drag and drop, etc., the come in a one piece of art and I am unable to ungroup or use the .emf option.  Thanks so much!

A shoutout to Monia Gause! Saved my day! Thank you for the suggestion. I had a 40 Illustrator artboards that needed to go to PowerPoint for a client. Literally 100 bucks saved my bacon! Thanks! More real solutions like this are what we need!

you can use the export assets panel. I do this all the time for ppt. Export as SVG so you can change the colors from ppt going forward if needed.

Thank you, Jonathan. When I export as an SVG, it brings all of the icons in as one piece of art, not individual, moveable pieces. Do you have this problem as well?

you can keep them in one artboard. group each one. and drag it to that panel. or juse select the icon and hold option, drag it and it will work the same for addign them to the panel one at the time. name them. Next, when you edit the icons, you will noticed they update on the panel

You could draw artboards around each one and export artboards.
