    PDFs as Presentations

    Does anyone else use PDFs as presentations tools instead of powerpoint? If so, what is the best software you've used to present PDFs as "slides".

    The best I've found is Foxit Phantom PDF, but I'm not a huge fan of its UI and it doesn't work with my clicker.

    I always use acrobat, ctrl+L and there it goes. I like it way better than ppt - more controls, no change in fonts, etc.

    If you really need to stick to PDF stick to Acrobat in read or full screen mode. Have you tried keynote ? Making presentations with keynote is a breeze. I hate PP too !

    keynote is a good one, so does powerpoint, pdf is not good for presentation, lack of animation support.

    Altho PDF is not the tool of choice for such purpose it can still deal with animation via flash.

    As a class of LaTeX Beamer is not the easiest to tame but it's free, cross-platform and truly powerful.
