Hey all,
For school one of my teachers keeps putting up files that are PDF's and i much prefer to take notes with ms powerpoint. It is much easier in my opinion (Unless im missing something, i only have Adobe Reader). But i was wondering if there was some way for me to convert these files into ppt. Thanks.

you take notes in powerpoint? I've never heard of that. you probably need to elaborate.

I can't imagine someone typing into a powerpoint presentation during a class as a means for taking notes.

Well as long as the PDF was "protected" you can save it as text. Not a great solution for sure, but likely the best you can do with just Acrobat Reader. The Pro version has more options. Ask the teacher if he/she can also make them available as PowerPoint, if they started out that way.

Well the teacher would post the notes into powerpoint and then in the margin below i take my notes. Its really quite nice in comparison to what you have to you have to do with adobe.
