Using Adobe Acrobat (or Acrobat Reader) to import Monetary Trends, International Economic Trends, and National Economic Trends Graphics into Powerpoint presentations
- Locate the graphic that you want from one of the three publications. Set
the magnification in Acrobat (or Acrobat Reader) to 300%
- Use the graphic select tool to draw a box around the graphic that you want
to copy. Then copy the selected area to the clipboard (Ctrl-C). Note: the
graphic select tool appears in different locations in various versions of
Acrobat. The illustration here is from Acrobat 5.0. We have verified that
this works with versions 4 and 5 of Acrobat Reader.
- Open a Powerpoint Window and paste the contents of the clipboard (Ctrl-V)
into a blank slide. At 300% magnification you will get a nice crisp full slide
graphic that does not require resizing.
