Save PowerPoint presentations as PDF files
When you save presentation as a PDF file it freezes the formatting and layout. People can view the slides even if they don’t have PowerPoint, but they can’t make changes to it.
Select File > Export .
Click Create PDF/XPS Document , then click Create PDF/XPS .
In the Publish as PDF or XPS dialog box, choose a location to save the file to. If you want it to have a different name, enter it in the File name box.
Optionally, if you want to change what the final PDF file is like, do any of the following:
At Optimize for , select Standard for higher quality (for example, if you want to print it). Select Minimum size to make the file smaller (for example, if you want to send it as an e-mail attachment).
Click Options to set how the presentation will appear as a PDF. Here are some of the available options:
To save the current slide only as a PDF, under Range , select Current slide .
To save specific slides as PDF, in Slides(s) , enter the slide number range in From and To boxes.
If you don't want to save slides, but instead only save comments, handouts, or Outline view, under Publish what , select an appropriate option. You can also specify the number of slides to appear in Slides per page dropdown box, and modify the order ( Horizontal or Vertical ).
You can choose to include frame slides, hidden slides, comments, ink, non-printing information such as Document properties or Document structure tags, in your PDF by selecting the appropriate options.
Click Publish .
There are two ways to make your PowerPoint for macOS presentation a PDF.
You can save your presentation as a PDF in File > Save As .
You can export your presentation as a PDF file by going to File > Export .
Both methods do the same thing, so you can choose whichever you're more familiar with when you want to create a PDF version of your presentation.
Method 1: Save your presentation as a PDF
Select File > Save As .
Choose the location where you'd like to save your PDF, and then in the File Format menu, choose PDF.
Method 2: Export your presentation as a PDF
In the File Format menu, choose PDF.
Note: If you’d like to have more options to customize PDF conversions of presentations in PowerPoint for macOS, let us know by providing us feedback. See How do I give feedback on Microsoft Office? for more information.
Set the print quality of the PDF
Features such as saving notes, saving slides as handouts, including hidden slides in the PDF, or setting the PDF to a smaller file size aren't available. However, you can set the print quality of a PDF to a higher or lower standard.
Tip: PowerPoint for macOS doesn't preserve hyperlinks in PDFs but if you save your presentation to OneDrive you can open it in PowerPoint for the web and download as PDF from there. PDF files generated from PowerPoint for the web preserve hyperlinks, are accessible, and also tend to have a smaller file size.
You can set the print quality of the PDF to High , Medium , or Low —depending on your need. By default, the print quality is set to High—which is the optimal choice for printing a PDF. Follow these instructions to set the print quality of the PDF:
Click the PowerPoint menu > Preferences .
In the PowerPoint Preferences dialog box, click General .
Under Print Quality (Paper/PDF) , set the Desired Quality to an option of your choice.
Click the File tab, click Download As , and then click Download as PDF . (The file is converted to PDF, and then a dialog box tells you that it is ready to download.
Click Download . A message bar appears to show you that the downloaded PDF file is ready to save to your computer. (The exact message varies depending on the web browser you're using.)
Click Save As , and then a dialog box appears that allows you to specify where to save the file on your computer.

I tried it and immediately fell in love! It was so easy to use! After a couple conversions I bought the guys a cup of coffee. A couple more and decided this was too good to abuse! I joined! My life is so much easier!
I had a huge, problematic file to convert that couldn't go through the usual automated conversion process. The Zamzar team responded quickly to my request for help, and they took the extra steps needed to do it manually.
Used it for over a year to convert my bank statements to csv files. Great quick app, increased my productivity a lot. Also, amazing support - always helped me quickly!
I've used this product for years. And customer service is excellent. Just had an issue where I was charged and I didn't agree with the charge and they took care of it, even though they didn't have to.
I have been so thankful for Zamzar’s support from the beginning of the Pandemic to the present day. Their service is first rate & their helpfulness is always the best it could be.
A very useful and professional site. The service is easy to use and the administrators are helpful and courteous.
It’s my first time using it. I had some complications doing it. I’m not very good at this. But I wrote to the company and I had a lot of help. I’m satisfied with customer service and with the app.
I use Zamar whenever I need to convert audio and video files from multiple submitters to 1 uniform file format for Audio and Video Editing. I can do multiple large files in a short amount of time.
Great for when you need a lot of conversions in a short time. You have directly access and can even put the subscription on for just a month.
Great thanks to you all for helping me to get the OLD files converted correctly. 20 years, quite a long time, reviewing the files brings much memory to me. That's the best gift I received last year. Thank you all again.

A PPT file, also known as a Microsoft PowerPoint Presentation file, is an editable presentation file that typically contains slides. These slides may feature formatted text, multimedia, including images, movie clips and audio, and various animations and transition effects that are included to help users navigate through the presentation. Many users would have been faced with a PPT file while at work or at school, as it is the de facto file type for presentations. It was originally developed by Forethought, Inc. before Microsoft bought it and developed it further – including by bundling it into their office suite. PPT files are not often built from scratch but, instead, users tend to select one of the many templates that are available and build on top of that. In 2007, the PPTX file replaced the PPT file as the primary file type used to save PowerPoint presentations. PPT files can be opened with either Microsoft Office for Windows or Microsoft Office for Mac, and these programs support all the animation features. Other applications, such as OpenOffice from Apache or Corel Presentations, allow PPT files to be opened but may not support all features.

The PDF format, or Portable Document Format file, was developed by Adobe Systems. PDF files are popular because they can be easily viewed and edited in a variety of computing platforms. Word documents can easily be exported or converted to PDF, and both presentations and images are also often saved out as a PDF file. Typically, PDF files are not created from scratch, but rather existing file types are converted into PDF format to allow the file to be easily shared and accessed. PDF files normally look exactly like the original file, with fonts, colours and images all preserved. They can also be annotated and can be opened by almost any device and by any modern web browser. PDF files can be edited using Adobe Acrobat PDF software, which was developed almost 30 years ago and is available on Windows and MacOS.
