I recently had to a slideshow presentation. I use coreldraw to design all my slides in a multi page coreldraw file. Converting coreldraw to powerpoint is a pain since each page has to be individually transfered, and powerpoint won’t antialias the imported text or graphics until you ungroup and convert to microsoft draw objects. When doing so, the positions of various objects tend to get moved around so superimposed objects between slides are no longer where they were supposed to be.
So rather than deal with that I just converted to acrobat and used acrobat in full screen mode to do my slideshow.
However, when playing around with powerpoint I noticed it’s got quite a nice dual-display presentation mode, where I can output the actual slide to the projector connected to the laptop’s VGA output, while having a control screen on the laptop display. The control screen includes a slide preview as well as a thumbnail list for quickly skipping to another slide and a notes pane for adding notes to individual slides.
I was wondering if there are any third-party plugins that add this kind of feature to acrobat for presentations. Alternatively, is there any third-party plugin or application that will convert an acrobat file into a powerpoint file, but converting all the elements into microsoft draw objects so that they are properly antialiased in powerpoint, while accurately maintaining the layout.
