Workaround to retain the paragraph formatting of text when copied from Word to Powerpoint

While developing an automation program which will copy text from Word file into PowerPoint, came across this issue of PowerPoint not able to retain the paragraph formatting of the text. This happens when the text has mix of bulleted and non-bulleted paragraphs. It seems that PowerPoint can only retain the formatting if each paragraph in Word is bulleted. Refer the screenshots to see the issue and the workaround.
