Export all text from a PPT

Post by jmt356 »

Is there an easy way to export all text from a PowerPoint presentation?

I tried pressing control + a while in the PDF and then copying and pasting the text into a Word document, but the only thing that pasted was an image of the current slide that I was in, not the text from that slide or the text from all the slides.

Then I tried to export the PowerPoint as a PDF and then select the text in the PDF and paste it into a Word document, but what I get appears to be comments from the slides and not the text in the slides itself.

Next, I tried to save the PowerPoint as a PDF and then also copy and paste the text into a Word document, but I got the same results as above.
Regards,

JMT
