Yeah, I'm not aware of any other way to do it. Either screen capture pages of the PDF and insert as images or copy the text and paste into containers (Text Captions or Smart Shapes).

Sorry, I'm a bit late to the party...
The PDF can be saved as to image files, PNG or JPG from Adobe Acrobat Pro.
(This also works for images in Word, or PPT can be exported to images too!)
(I'd recommend you try exporting a page or two as a test, play with screen resolution in the PDF and save as. In Cp the resolution will allow display of the full page without loss of resolution.)
These files can be imported, or dragged, to the Cp library of an existing project.
I don't believe that there is a magical way to create a slide for each image in the library, but I could use one!
I would really appreciate it if I can see a pdf page converted as an image. It is important to know how good or bad the resolution is before I buy the pro version of Adobe Reader.
thank you in advance
Please, why do you not post this in the Acrobat or Adobe Reader forum?
II found the answer to my question here. I mean they discussed above the idea of converting pdf pages into images so i assumed that they could answer my question. that's all
I also posted in the reader forum but no one answered me.
You posted the same question on several places.
Taking a screen capture to convert a pdf to an image will certainly not result in the best quality, especially if you talk about a pdf that has a lot of text, which needs a very good resolution. If at least you told for which purpose you'll need an image.
Thank you so much for your reply.
I need to convert 600 pdf pages into images to use each page/image as a slide in a responsive Captivate project.
Responsive? Then you need to remember that an image is NOT of itself responsive. It's going to remain a fixed size.
You need to do some testing before you go too far with this idea and attempt converting 600 pdfs into images. I don't think you're going to be happy with the results.
I totally agree with you but some specific Arabic script, as well as tables, are very difficult to be created in Captivate. If there is a way to write the content I need directly in Captivate that would be better. The other issue is that I have already created all my tables in Microsoft Excel. I also created a PDF file from the excel hoping I could import them in Captivate as both are Adobe. However, this was not the case, unfortunately.
