How to Convert PPT to PDF

Download and install a free trial to try it out, or install and activate your purchased copy. The setup program will install the PDF Creator Plus app and  PDF Creator Plus 8 virtual printer to your computer.

The icing on the cake is that the PDF Creator Plus 8 printer, with the PDF Creator Plus app, allows you to build your PDF from multiple documents. You only need to continue printing presentations and other documents until you have collected all the pages for your PDF.

Open your PowerPoint presentation in Microsoft PowerPoint and select File->Print from the application menu.

Open your PowerPoint presentation. Click File and then choose Print from the menu.

Working With PPT and PPTX Presentations and Other Files in PDF Creator Plus

The PDF Creator Plus 8 printer sends the pages from your PPT or PPTX presentation to the PDF Creator Plus app. 

In the app, you can use the included tools to annotate the pages with text, shape, and images. You can also add, move, rotate, and delete unwanted pages before creating your PDF file.

Although printing the pages of your PowerPoint presentation does not keep any outline or hyperlink information, there are annotation tools for adding outline headings and hyperlinks back on your pages. See Creating An Outline/Bookmarks in PDF Creator to learn how to add outline information to your pages before creating your PDF. Subsequently, for hyperlinks, see our article How do I add a hyperlink to a PDF Creator Plus Project?

At this stage, click the Create PDF button to convert your PPT to PDF or continue printing to add other documents.

Click the Create PDF button to save the pages of your PowerPoint presentation to PDF.
