Hi There,

I am sure that I asked this question but it has completely skipped my mind. A presentation has been made and saved as a PDF. I am now having trouble finding the original powerpoint document as I was not the one who created this.

Is there a way of transferring a PDF file back into a powerpoint document?

Thanks so much,

Just to let you know, we run public speaking training London courses for those who present on a regular basis.

RE: Powerpoint

Hi Sarina

Thanks for your question.

PowerPoint doesn't open pdf files directly. You could use Adobe reader to view each slide and then from the Edit menu choose Snapshot to take a screen grab of each page you would like to add to your presentation. This adds the pdf page as a picture.

Alternatively if you have the full version of Adobe you can edit the pdf to extract just the information you would like to incorporate on your slide.

I hope this helps - let me know if you have any further questions.

Kind regards,

PowerPoint tip:

How to create an invisible Hyperlink

Draw a shape onto your slide covering the text you would want to use as your hyperlink. Insert your hyperlink on the shape, but then go the the paint bucket and choose no fill and then go the line colour and choose no line.

When you now run your slide show and hover over the word, you get a hyperlink.
