Page Plus enables exporting of files to PDF in various forms, including 'PDF Slideshow'. The current Beta of Publisher doesn't seem to have this facility. Is it coming, or is there another way to turn a Publisher file into a slideshow?

Not directly. And not within PDF export. As workaround you could either/or...

– view the PDF with full-screen mode and click through its pages with arrow keys.
– export in Publisher pages as single images, JPG for example, and click through them in full-screen mode with your OS tool.

And, but possibly not your approach: There is a way in Publisher to export a PDF with interactive elements included (see hyperlinks panel), which enable you to jump on click to particular PDF pages. More work for you than a pure slideshow, because you have to layout and assign interactivity.

You don’t need Acrobat Pro for this. The free Acrobat Reader  can do this too!

  1. Go to „Preferences/Full Screen"
  2. Adjust the Page turn timing, the background and the transition mode
  3. Then go back to display mode and choose menu „View/Full Screen“
  4. Done.

And it works! Many thanks for this. I really did want a system that will go through a variety of slide at one end of the room while I can talk to people at the other end. This can be the solution.
