Ever have to take a presentation file on a flash drive to use on equipment that isn’t yours?
Are you sure that they have the program needed to run your presentation?
How about the fonts? Or did you make your file larger by embedding them?
Well today I’d like to make a suggestion for getting around some of these issues – save it to a PDF file format.
Yep – that’s my whole suggestion – PDF.
While you most likely wouldn’t be able to edit it (most people only have Adobe Reader) you could rest assured that displaying your presentation won’t be hampered by a lack of software.
To save an Impress file presentation in PDF form, use either the File menu, Export as PDF
…or… click the Export Directly as PDF button.
Either way, name your file and you’re good to go.
When you get to your destination you’ll simply need Adobe Reader give a stellar performance.
Oh yeah, in Adobe Reader you can use the View menu, Full Screen Mode (Ctrl + L) to get the look you want.
Then it’s just a matter of the Page Up & Page Down keys from there.
Who knew that giving presentations on computers that aren’t your own could be so worry free?
