One of the major issues I face with Keynote is that people constantly demand Powerpoint versions of the PDF presentations I create. These are a bit of a pain to create as the “Export to PPT” feature in Keynote doesn’t work.
I stumbled across this blog post today by Aiden Findlater about the best way to get Keynotes/PDFs into Powerpoint.
I used to drag each page of the PDF into Powerpoint, but that often resulted in a document that was too large to email, especially with larger presentations.
The best way to do it (i.e. smallest file sizes and best results) is pretty counter-intuitive, but:
Export to PDF -> Copy PDF into Keynote page by page -> Export as PPT
Voilà! Thanks, Aiden, wherever you are.
