Hey folks, i have an indesign layout. Right now i take a screenshot of the ppt slides and place that as an image on to my layout.
Is there a way to place the ppt like i do a .pdf and specify which slide i want to display so later when people make changes to the ppt, i can just update the links and display the updated slide?
@BobLevine But if someone makes a change to the PowerPoint file, then they have to save the change and re-export to PDF each time (save as the same file name) in order for the InDesign link to update correctly, right?
yes, that is what i been doing. i am looking to streamline the process by having the ppt file itself linked.
Right, I don't think it's possible since you have a Microsoft product tyring to sync changes with an Adobe product but never say never... there could be a custom script or plug-in app that someone could figure out to make the process more automatic. That's beyond my pay grade, lol.
Right...and it's not all that big a deal to export and overwrite the PDF. Then just update the link.
i been doing that. yes, i a just wondering if there is a way to just work from the PPT file itself
No problem, just curious if it could be done. Trying to skip a step and maybe improve workflow
are you on Mac or PC?
What version of PowerPoint?
FWIW: With my very old version of PowerPoint 2011 on Windows 10 I'm not able to write high-quality PDFs.
