Is there any way to convert equation objects made in Equation Editor 3/3.1 into the updated, direct in-line text in the new Equation Tool for Office 2007/2010?

The large project I'm working on has dozens of PowerPoint files, with slides containing numerous equations that I have to update. Most of the equations are in the 3.1 format- clicking on them shows the large white border around them, they are treated like a Drawing object, and clicking in that opens up the old 3.1 editor. What I need to do is replace this with a simple text line of the equation using the updated equation editor in Word 2007/2010.
I know that if you had an equation just written as text, you can highlight it with alt-= and convert it to the new Equation Editor. Is there ANY way to do this with the text inside older Equation Editor 3 objects? I would LOVE to not have to retype all of these.
