PDF of PPT

Post by Sundog »

I have received a PDF of a PowerPoint slide presentation. Is it possible to change the PDF back into a PPT? I just need 4 slides in the new PPT.

I'm trying to use an online tool to convert the entire PDF back to a PPTX. But I can't seem to get PowerPoint to run.

Can't you get the converted file to open in PowerPoint, or can't you get PowerPoint to start at all?

At lunch. Now back. Major repair to PowerPnt (as microsoft likes to call it). Now I can open it, and I was successful in converting the PDF to an editable PPTX using PDFtoGo.com.

Make that sorta editable. Or not editable at all. Will try another approach.

Much better conversion from PDF to PPTX using www.iLovePDF.com! Opens in PowerPoint without the backgrounds from the original, but all text is there, which is what I need. I'm good to go.

www.iLovePDF.com has a free version, which worked great as described above. I'm impressed enough to sign up for the Pro version.
