i have lots of pdf attachments which i need to convert to powerpoint for a presentation and also for printing several per page. I have looked through powerpoint 'help' but can't see how it's done.

any ideas??

I don't think you can convert from pdf to PowerPoint as they're proprietary file types from different companies, you could copy from the pdf and paste to a new PowerPoint, but it's likely to be a laborious process.
As to printing several per page, it may be dependant on printer software, but try printing the pdf via file/print, mine brings up a window with a "Print Handling" section, this has a drop down menu entitled page arrange with an option "Multiple pages per sheet" that will do the job if it shows on your system.

It always makes a mess trying to convert from PDF to MS formats. If you can't just link then maybe try converting to graphic files instad and inserting those.

Here is one way (albeit long winded for multiple documents) ....

Use the "snap shot" tool in Acrobat and select whatever you want - this is then on the clipboard.

Open the presentation and paste as you would anything else - re-size and there you have it.

I can vouch for their pdf converter to MSWord or Excel.
You can download a trial but the registered version is pretty cheap.

I think you will need a reader programme to do it
PDF to Word is very easy with Ommnipage assume powerpoint will as simple. Scan and then convert
