When you're finished with your presentation, and it's time to create a PDF, we…need to go to File > Export.…Underneath Format, we have two different PDF options:…there is Print and Interactive.…If you're only going to be creating a PDF that was going to be printed, we would…choose Print. But because this has transitions and buttons and other interactive…elements, we want to choose Interactive.…I'll choose the Desktop and click Save.…Let's take a look at our options.…At a top for Pages, we can choose All the pages or a specific range.…
If I choose a range, I can limit what pages are included.…For example, if I only want page 1, I'll choose 1.…But if I want to narrow this down, I could say 1-5, and include page 7, and then 11-13.…For now, I am going to choose All.…I like to view the PDFs after exporting, just to get one more chance to look at…it to find out if there are any problems with the file.…Including the thumbnails is useful for navigating the document inside the PDF,…but it does add to its file size.…
