    I have both DocsToGo and QuickOffice apps, but I'm struggling to retain the formatting on my MS Office 2008 powerpoint presentation. Is there anything out there that will retain ALL features (not necessarily animations, just things like shadowed/reflection pictures, accurate bullet points and correct indentations). I've read about converting it to video. Is there any other way, another app that could preserve it perhaps?

    If I have to convert to video what is the best way to do it/software?

    thanks.

    Why not convert it to PDF - for sure that will preserve all the formatting and you'll be able to display it on the iPad precisely as it appeared on the PC.

    Nope, that doesn't work either. Still loses the formatting.

    What particular formatting doesn't display correctly? How are you converting to PDF?

    Wait a minute...the PDF works! I tried it yesterday with no luck. Fantastic. Thanks for that.
