  • *Powerpoint presentation which contains custom animations. I use the macro here to deconstruct the presentation before saving as a .pdf. By starting at page/slide 1, zooming full screen/to fit, and stepping through the document in sequential order, you should be able to reproduce these transitions in a "flipbook" fashion which eliminates the need for having to worry about whether your version of (insert your favorite presentation software here) is compatible with mine.
