PDFs From PowerPoint for Windows: Troubleshooting Issues

This tutorial explores problems with PDF generation from PowerPoint.


Product/Version: Microsoft PowerPoint 2002, 2003 and 2007

Some fonts in my converted PDF are not the same as in the original PowerPoint

This often happens when you are using Adobe Type 1 fonts in your presentation, and using the free Microsoft Save as PDF and XPS add-in to convert your presentations to PDFs. However, this add-in works fine with Open Type and True Type fonts.

Why is the Save as PDF and XPS add-in not a default option?

Why doesn't Microsoft make the Save as PDF and XPS add-in as a part of Office rather than requiring me to download it as a separate add-in? That's a great question, and no one knows for sure why they implemented the PDF output option as an extra add-in requiring a separate installation.

Organic Shapes with Brush Edges

You get 8 shape types plus lines as part of this Organic Shapes collection. Each of these 8 shape types have 10 variants. So you end up with 80 hand-drawn shape options! Again each of these 80 shapes have 12 brush stroke styles! Plus you get the lines and arrows in 12 brush stroke styles too. Combine all variations to end up with more than 3000 possibilities.
