Request that PPT 'last slide viewed' hyperlinks get converted properly when making PDFs.
The 'last slide viewed (LSV)' hyperlink functionality in powerpoint is a fantastic capability. However, when you save the powerpoint containing LSV links as a PDF, the LSV links drop out. I don't believe that it would be an incredibly difficult fix/update to make, but would tremendously improve the functionality of the powerpoint product.
Is there any progress on this? I too need this for my students
I have a work project that DEPENDS on the ability to jump from slide 36 to slide 99 to verify, and then back to 36. I don't want users to have to go back to slide 1, then click a link to 7, a link to 20, and a link to 36. I want ONE CLICK to get my users back to the page they need. TIME = MONEY...
Yes, please! PDF doesn't support the same (lame) Last Slide Viewed behavior that PPT does, but it does have the ability to navigate back and forth through the stack of recently viewed pages. All it would take to accomplish something USEFUL would be to convert PPT's LSV links to Acrobat/PDF's Previously Viewed links. My own Prep4PDF add-in for PowerPoint did this for years, until Microsoft broke it irreparably (by removing support for EPS; long story, sad ending). But since the Office Save as PDF feature doesn't rely on EPS, but CAN create standard links in PDF, this should be fairly simple. No need to maintain the stack; Acrobat does that for you.
