Using Adobe Acrobat for presentations
  1. Most of you will most likely create your presentations in MS Powerpoint. If you've done so, then select to Export your presentation as a pdf file.
  2. Depending on your version of Powerpoint, you may be presented with several options for Export, including Screen, Print, or Press Optimization. I suggest that you select Print or Press, since image resolution tends to be too low when using Screen optimized files.
  3. That's it! You now have a pdf version of your presentation. When loaded into Adobe Acrobat Reader, the presentation may be viewed using the Full Screen mode.
  4. One word of caution: Animations, depending on how you made them, might not be preserved in the pdf file. Please check your file for modifications and adjust your planned presentation accordingly!
