If we break the link to the data, the PivotTable will no longer be interactive and won’t support expand/collapse, filtering, or sorting. Copy/Paste into Paint or any other graphics program will preserve an exact picture of the PivotTable with all formatting. In any event, this item isn’t likely to be addressed soon.

Try copying a portion of the pivot table using Cntrl C and then pasting it in another location using Cntrl V. You can delink the entire table by leaving the first row of the table and copy/paste the rest.
