TIP 23: Generating PDF Documents in PowerPoint and Publisher

How would you like to distribute a PowerPoint slideshow—complete with slide transitions and animation— without having to pack the files and add a player? Or convert your spectacular Publisher projects to PDF without first having to create a Word document? You can do both quickly and easily with PDFMakers.

Using Print Settings

If you want your slides to be used as part of a larger PDF file that uses standard-sized pages, use the PDF layout based on PowerPoint print settings in the Application Settings of the PDFMaker Settings dialog. The default layout for a presentation uses Landscape orientation and often a full-color background; printing a presentation as part of a larger document can take a lot of time and consume a lot of ink if you simply convert the presentation itself. Of course, using the print settings option depends on the content of your presentation. Bullet lists, for example, will display properly in a Portrait orientation; images or charts may not.
