How to Copy PDF to PowerPoint
If you've ever wondered how to copy PDF to PowerPoint, your question has finally been answered. This article shows you how to copy an image from PDF to PowerPoint and even how to copy a table from PDF to PowerPoint. The content doesn't really matter because PDF is a static format. The process is simple, too, but you'll need to have the right tools for the job, which is basically your MS PowerPoint application and a wonderfully intuitive PDF editor called PDFelement. With just these tools, you can easily overcome the challenge of how to copy PDF to PowerPoint.
How to Copy PDF Content to PowerPoint
Text and other content such as links, etc. can be copy-pasted from PDF to PPT in very simple steps. First, though, make sure you have both applications open and the correct files open in each. In PDFelement, that means simply dragging and dropping the file into the software interface. When you're ready, do the following:
- In the PDF document that's open, select the "Edit" option in the top menu and then click on the text or any other object you want to copy to PPT, including tables, charts, graphs, and other elements.
- Do "Ctrl+C" to copy the content, then toggle to PowerPoint.
- Go to the slide where you want the content and do "Ctrl+V" to paste it there.
- You can re-position the content and change the attributes just like you would for any other element in PPT.
How to Copy Image from PDF File to PowerPoint
Images can easily be copied from PDF files and inserted into a PPT slide using the same keyboard functions. The source file will be the PDF containing the image you want to copy, and the target will be the PPT file - navigate to the correct slide using the thumbnail pane so you can quickly paste it. Here are the steps to be followed when you're ready:
- In PDFelement, click on the "Edit" tab at the top and click on the option to edit images.
- Select the image by clicking on it, then do "Ctrl+C" to copy the image.
- Toggle to the PowerPoint slide, and do "Ctrl+V" to paste the copied image; do this as many times as you need to, depending on how many images you want to transfer.
- In PowerPoint, you can position and resize the image or images to fit inside your presentation.
How to Copy PDF Page to PowerPoint
Transferring an entire page from a PDF file to a PowerPoint presentation is a little more complex because you can't just copy everything and expect it to have the same alignment, etc. Of course, you can take a screenshot of the PDF page and insert it as an image on a new slide, but the problem here is that it will not be editable in any way except for resizing and repositioning. On the other hand, if you actually convert the PDF page into the PowerPoint format, it will maintain the look of the original page but will be completely editable in PPT.
Here's how to do it:
- Open the relevant PDF file and go to the "Convert" tab at the top.
- In the "Convert" section, select "To PPT" as the output file option.
- You'll see a "Save As" window popping up, where you can choose the target location; click the "Save" button to convert the file and save it to that folder.
- In PowerPoint, use the Open function to open the newly created PPT file, which is actually the converted PDF.
- Click on the thumbnail of the slide to be inserted and do "Ctrl+C" to copy it.
- Now toggle to the target PPT file, navigate to the place where you want to insert the file and use "Ctrl+V" to paste it there - you can move its position if you need to.
The task of copying content from PDF to PPT is one of the simplest ones you can do with PDFelement. In reality, it is a powerful PDF editor with a lot more functionality that just doing simple tasks. Here's a snapshot of what you can do:
- Create, Edit, and Annotate: If you have other document formats that you want to convert into PDF, you can either do them one at a time, in a batch, or even combine them into a single, large PDF. You can then edit various elements like text, images, links, and so on. If you need to review someone else's work, you can do that with the extensive tools provided for commenting and making annotations.
- Sign, Secure, and Share: Adding a digital signature from a hand-drawn one is super-easy. After that, you can apply password encryption for viewing or modifying the document, and quickly share it with others from directly within the software.
- OCR and Forms: Advanced features include the ability to perform OCR on a scanned PDF so you can edit the elements inside. You can even do Form Field Recognition and form data extraction with this versatile software application. OCR is extremely accurate and the utility supports several languages, too.
- Convert to and From PDF: The ‘To PDF' part was covered in the first bullet point above, but you can also convert files from PDF into a range of other formats like MS Office files, images, HTML, EPUB, and several more. The quality of the conversion is superb and the original contents are preserved exactly in the final output file.
In addition to having all these features, you'll find that PDFelement is also highly intuitive. In just a few minutes of playing around with the software, you'll get a solid grip on the many things it can accomplish. That's the biggest reason why businesses - large and small - are flocking to this versatile tool; another major reason is that it does nearly everything that Adobe Acrobat DC and Pro DC can but at a much lower price point. Besides, basic functions like editing, converting, and annotations can be done in the free trial version for smaller files. Finally, to further sweeten the deal more, the company has developed free iOS and Android apps that offer similar features for touch devices like smartphones and tablets.
