After you’re done creating a presentation, you might need a PDF version of it so that you can open it in any computer, regardless of the presentation software it has or whether there’s an internet connection available or not. Or, simply, you just want to have a printed version of your presentation with the speaker notes. In this tutorial you'll learn how to convert a Google Slides presentation to a PDF file, and there are two ways to do so.
