exporting PowerPoint into a design program (eg. Quark)?
 
I got a huge project in PowerPoint and have been authorized to move the entire project into a design program and given a budget to do so.

Is there an extension/plug-in for Quark, In-design, or other mainstream/quality program on the market? Or perhaps a design/layout app that already includes this functionality?

Mac or PC

TIA!

RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously. You can't do crap with PowerPoint. The colors are all RGB, the transparency is a joke - you can't even get that into a useable PDF. About the only thing I could maybe think of that might work is to bring it into Flash and export out as eps or illustrator files. Which would suck...

Why do you need it in a design program, out of curiousity?

Because it's on-going project that will require edits. Since I'll have to make changes regularly, I prefer using a design program instead of PP because...

I agree with HereNT.

You'll pretty much have to re-create it in Quark or (preferrably) InDesign or PageMaker. Hell, even MS Publisher would be better than PowerPoint.

OpenOffice's presentation program will open M$ Powerpoint presentations and offers quite a few exporting options. Might be worth a shot, won't cost you anything but time.

Thanks Nick! I'll look into that.

I'm still hoping to find an automated or 1-step process as the project sent to me contains 300 files :eek: :(
