Well I have always been a big fan of Powerpoint, it is a lot more powerful than people give it credit for… and I should have really investigated this workflow more seriously long ago but as usual work always gets in the way…
Nevertheless I an currently modelling a concept design / feasibility study for two 46 floor apartment towers in SU and have set up the presentation in LO to generate PDF’s as the design progresses.
frustrated that I cant do all the other enhancements I usually do in PPT. eg image transparencies, gradients, shadow drops, animations, find and replace text, master pages, transitions, real text editing… etc etc etc…
I also use PDF-XChange Editor for all my PDF production and it has a option to convert PDF’s to Powerpoints…
… hmmm what if I convert my LO PDF output to PPT?
will it be painless?
will it respect the content and position of information in LO?
will it be editable in PPT?
will it be quick?
I can happily say yes to all the above !
If you want to go one step beyond LO only output consider direct conversion into PPT via PDF-Xchange’s convert tool… it is impressive
Note Vector work remains vector in PPT, as do text blocks and individual text…
File sizes are reasonable - the original source was a 28 page A3 Layout output at highest quality
The resulting PDF from LO was 6.2Mb - the PPTX file was 9.6Mb [time for conversion in both cases was about 30 seconds
