Is there anyway to convert a powerpoint file
to a word file? I have some powerpoint presentation and want to convert them to
word file and edit them to turn into proper
lecture notes.
Any advice will be appreciated.
Thanks!

File/Save as and for File type select Outline/RTF. This will save as an .rtf file which will open in Word.

VoG,

Thanks for advice, but this does not solve my
problem because all pictures and embedded objects
such as equations are lost by save as outline.

Any other way?

Still not found the solution.
Any help?

Why can`t you type the notes within Powerpoint (Not on the slides but under the slide notes)? They can then be printed out with a picture of the relevant slide and distributed to delegates.

Good idea, but it still is not what I want
to do.

I want to convert powerpoint file into word file
and then edit it and adding some additional
materials to turn them into proper Lecture
Notes/Textbook.

I am keeping this topic live until someone
find a solution. It is strange that MS does
not have facility to convert between office components.

In Powerpoint after opening presentation file, why don't you click on File / Send To / Microsoft Word and then pick what option you want? Is that what you want...maybe??
