How to Import PDF to Keynote on Mac
PDFs are one of the most widely used file formats because they can be easily shared without compromising formatting, layout, and graphics. However, not everyone has the right tools to read and edit PDF documents. If you don't have access to a PDF reader on your OS or OS X device, working with PDFs can be a challenge. Apple devices do have another option though, which is Keynote. In this article, we'll discuss how to import PDF to Keynote on Mac using a powerful and efficient PDF tool - PDFelement.
Steps for how to Open PDF in Keynote
Step 1. Open PDF File
Launch the program. On the Home window, click the "Open File..." button to choose the file you want to import. Or drag and drop the PDF document into the program window directly.
