    Hi all i am the noobest automater user

    So i got a ton of powerpoint documents about 30+ which i want them to be converted to pdf. I know i can do this via

    1. Open Keynote/Open Office > Print > Save as PDF

    But this is too repetitive. So can i use automator in anyway? and save the files in the original file names?

    Here's my first pass at it, I haven't tested it yet, though. I'll give it a try and let you know if it works.

    You will need to add: Open PDF by default Application (found in the Finder actions). Saving will have to be done manually.
