Although they are frequently used for document exchange, PDF files are not always simple to edit or change. You might occasionally need to convert a PDF file to a PowerPoint presentation file that can be edited (PPT or PPTX). For example, if you want to reuse some content from a PDF report or presentation in your own slides.
