Animations in a PowerPoint 2007 or PowerPoint 2010 presentation are not exported to a PDF file

Applies to: Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007PowerPoint 2010

Symptoms


When you export a presentation that contains animations from Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 or PowerPoint 2010 to a Portable Document Format (PDF) file, the animations are not exported to the PDF file.

Cause


This issue occurs because a presentation appears in a PDF file exactly how the presentation appears in a printed document. Because animations cannot be printed, animations are not exported to the PDF file when you export a presentation from PowerPoint 2007 or PowerPoint 2010.
