In which Situations Do We Need to Convert PDF to PowerPoint?

PowerPoint slides are frequently used for presentations as a reference point for speakers. But they are not suitable for sharing or printing. Because many PowerPoint documents encounter problems when moved from one computer to another--graphics disappear or misprint, text and labels shift position; and they often don't print the way they look on-screen. Therefore, users always need to convert PowerPoint to PDF.

However, it is not easy for people to reuse these shared PowerPoint files in PDF format. They can only be viewed by PDF Reader and copied manually if they are not protected with password. Any editing or modification will not be allowed without PDF Editor. Besides, PDF is not as suitable for presentations as PowerPoint taking into account of the lively and practical. Thusly, an appropriate application that can convert a PDF file back to PowerPoint will be required.
