Not stupid at all ...
Someone has sent me a long presentation in ppt format which consists
mainly of text. It is somewhat annoying to try to read and absorb
the intent of the text. Is there a simple way to extract the text
from the entire slide show and save it as a text document- I don't
care what format it is as long as it is on one page instead of 45?
Here's a rather messy workaround:
o Open the presentation in Impress.
o Go to File | Export as PDF... to create a PDF copy.
o Open the PDF copy in your favourite PDF reader and save as text from there.
I trust this helps.
