How to Turn a Powerpoint into a PDF File

Click here to subscribe to our YouTube Channel

Many of our customers that are new to working with PowerPoint ask the question “If I’m using PowerPoint, how do I save a file as a PDF?” . The answer is it is quite simple – 3 clicks of your mouse!

This is something you might want to do if you are going to edit a PowerPoint file in Canva, because you can’t actually upload PowerPoint files directly into Canva, or maybe you want to use Adobe Acrobat to edit the file.  

It's simple; to do so, we're using as our example the Abundance Mindset Journal from our Develop an Abundance Mindset done-for-you package.

All you do is open the file in PowerPoint. Then from the top-line menu, click on File > Save As and select PDF. It takes a moment or two to save the document depending on the number of pages. But when done, you'll have PDF that you can further work with however you want.

In the video, we opened one of our reports from our Developing an Abundance Mindset ekit. While the report is done for you and ready to publish, you might reason to save it out as a PDF.

To do so, first open up the document in Microsoft Word. Then if on a Mac, from the top-line menu, click on File > Save As and you will find the PDF option under Export. If using a PC, just click on PDF after Save As.

  1. Whenever I try to save a PPT to PDF, no matter which of the powerpoint options I use, it will not save the shadows. Is there something I need to do in the setup or somewhere else, so that my shadows are also saved in the PDF?

    1. Hello, I just tried it by saving out a jpeg with a shadow down and to the right that was in a ppt slide as a PDF and the PDF has the shadow in it. What version of PowerPoint are you using? Mine is the latest in Office 365. If you are using an extremely old standalone version, that might be the problem, but the newer versions all save out shadows that are in ppt and pptx files.
