If you have selected a Presentation format to create your visual, you will have the option to download your work in PPTX format, which will allow you to open your work in PowerPoint.
Powerpoint download is only available with the Presentation format. This option is not available in any other formats.
First, select one of our Presentation templates.
Once you finished your work, head to Download in the upper right corner.
Choose the PowerPoint format.
Your PPTX file will start generating and it will automatically be saved to your Downloads folder on your computer.
As a free user, you will be limited to 2 download quotas.
Some limitations to PowerPoint Export:
- Grouping: Items that have been grouped in Piktochart won't be grouped in the exported file.
- Charts and maps: They can only be rendered as images.
- SVG export: Some SVG files may contain complicated content. Hence, they will be exported as a PNG instead of an editable SVG.
- Font issues: Click here to learn more.
- Bullet list: The position might be slightly off.
What if my PPT file is too big? Can I compress the file size?
Yes, you can! If you need assistance compressing your document, you can check out this helpful guide by HighSpark.
Some things to keep in mind:
- The download time can be affected by the complexity of the visual - for example, if it contains charts, maps or SVG files (high complexity content like multi-colored icons).
- Your work will be automatically saved before downloading it. But if you change anything after, it won't be reflected on your downloaded PPT.
- If the connection is lost in the process of downloading, you will get an error message, and you will need to check your internet connection and start the download process again.
How can I export my Presentation to Google Slides?
Since Google Slides can open, read, and edit PPT files, you can download the PPT file from Piktochart and open the PPT file directly on Google Drive.
Why is there a discrepancy with font sizes between Piktochart and Powerpoint?
We've had a few users report discrepancies between font sizes/formatting between the Piktochart editor and the Powerpoint software when importing a Piktochart visual.
This is due to the difference in the units of measurement between the two programs. In Powerpoint, the font size is in the PT unit, but the font size is in PX in our application.
