How to Convert PDF to PowerPoint for Free

While the PDF format is great for a lot of things, it definitely has its limitations. One of the most frustrating aspects of a PDF file is the fact that it cannot be easily edited. It’s great for archiving documents and sharing them as is with others, but you can’t really make any revisions to them.

Microsoft PowerPoint, on the other hand, is a great and easily editable format that many people use when putting together presentations.
