Not really, no.
Honestly just google the thing theres a million ways
You're right, Eugene, but I'm with Bob on this one: none of them are really good.
(Except for the one where you send your document to some guy who recreates it for you in the target application.)
You can select, copy text of a document and paste this into PowerPoint.
But selection will not copy any graphics. The only way to do this so far as I can work out, would be to use Snippet tool and copy these one by one.
Export as PDF. Open the PDF in Acrobat Pro XI. Save this PDF as PowerPoint file in Acrobat Pro. Open the PPTX file in PowerPoint.
Not perfect, but at least to use.
Another method is to use Office2ID plugin.
Yeh there's a lot of ways to do it with plugins etc.
Best bet is to start from scratch and create it in Powerpoint.
Always the best option - start from scratch when changing applications.
Why not make your presentation in InDesign via PDF? cmd/ctrl+L will give you the opportunity to show PDFs in a presentation style.
I represent Recosoft. We make ID2Offfice (http://www.recosoft.com/products/id2office). This exports/converts InDesign CS5-CC 2014 files to PowerPoint, Word and Keynote formats. You can view the Youtube video I've posted below how it converts the file:
You can also try the brand new Acrobat DC.
Recently I did some tests converting PDFs to PowerPoint and found the results quite amazing.
The conversions will not be perfect, but will be a very good starting point to work them over in PowerPoint.
At least better than starting from scratch or copy/paste stuff.
@PaulChadha The current conversion from Indesign into Keynote or Powerpoint leaves much to be desired.
Recosoft's tools and others like it still fail at some key points. I'm not looking for perfection, but solutions need to be better evolved if they are to truly help workflow efficiencies.
One of my biggest peeves is the inconsistent behaviour or results in Powerpoint or Keynote. And with that how Powerpoint handles fonts differently than Keynote. Very frustrating to try ID2Office and see it fail in my opion when I get it over to Keynote. Stylesheets do not map and my presentation gets scrubbed of any font choices I have in my ID doc... everything dumps to default to Helvetica. While I love Helvetica, this is not helpful and creates more work for cleanup (in many cases, the only success here is content getting ported over... but all needs to be restyled).
Please let me know that I am missing something and there is a better solution out there.
Thank you for getting back to me about ID2Office (but this is a little forum off-topic so emailing us at info AT recosoft.com would be more appropriate.
But let me take the time to respond.
With respect to the Fonts issue you bring up, the fonts should come through properly to PowerPoint and Keynote. If they don't, that's most probably because your fonts are not stored in the actual Library/Fonts via Font Book.
InDesign can access fonts locally from within the directory/folder that contains the InDesign file. Unfortunately the same is not true for PowerPoint and Keynote. The fonts must be available system wide (and active) otherwise ID2Office can't map the fonts properly and PowerPoint and Keynote can't see them.
So, please have the fonts installed via Font Book system wide then restart your Mac and try it out. With respect to Keynote style sheets we understand your issue. ID2Office honors Style Sheets when converting to the Word format. With respect to PowerPoint there is no concept of a Style Sheet.
When it comes to Keynote, we are addressing this in a future update (I can't spell out when - but it will get addressed as we continuously enhance ID2Office (and the Keynote format is not documented at all - we have to figure the format out ourselves and it takes a long time figuring it out as its a trial and error process to ensure it doesn't break Keynote).
