    Convert PPT to PDF (2000/SR-1)

    I am trying to convert a 68-page PPT presentation in Notes format to PDF. It has now been running for about 40 minutes and isn't done yet. It successfully mapped transitions and still says that it is "Printing". Task Monitor says that it is Running at 100% CPU usage. Any ideas as to whether this is normal or not? I tried it first on 2 pages of the presentation and it worked.

    Incidentally, if it matters, in the Text Box for every Note page, I've added blank lines (underscored) so that the audience can jot down notes easily. We're really using Notes as a Handout page. Is there a way to do this in Handout view and get blank lines?

    Thanks,
    Caroline

    For your first issue, I don't know if that's normal or not for such a long presentation, but as a work-around (since it works for a small amount of pages) you can break up the presentation by PDFing smaller sections, then combining those sections into one PDF. You can do this by opening the first PDFed section and choosing Document, Insert pages. When you do this though, any links between pages are broken, but you can reconnect them by using the Link tool on the toolbar.
    Hope that helps
    have fun

    I use pdfFactory, so to me, converting to PDF means printing. I find it hard to believe it could take so long with the product you're using. Depending on the layout you're looking for, consider the option of using Send
