Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Use Adobe Acrobat to convert any file to PowerPoint, part of Managing Conversions Between Adobe CC and Microsoft Office.
- [Voiceover] So we want to get our files to…an editable PowerPoint file…in some way, some how,…and we are not going to use any third-party software.…The very first thing that I would recommend you try…is to use Acrobat's feature…of Export to PowerPoint.…Give that a shot.…That means that you need to get your file into PDF format…so that you can open it up in Acrobat.…I have here an InDesign layout…and we're going to look at an Illustrator file…and even a Photoshop file.…
Ok so first let's try the InDesign file…and just to review how this is set up,…it's very short, it's about eight pages long.…It has some interesting graphics happening in the back.…Let's look at the Pages panel.…There are a couple masters, title and content.…Most of these that you see with a C mean they're content…and what's happening especially on the content one…is that there is an automatic page number…that's going to appear twice, little and large.…That's how the artist came up with this cool device.…
So we're going to export this to PDF.…File, Export, and I'll save it right onto the desktop.…
