    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
