I've bought a pdf format ebook and would like to quote some sections to make a word or PPT presentation for my teaching class, buy somehow I can only copy text but not the charts and photos which are the most important things. So how can I convert the pdf ebook to word or PPT document without changing the original layouts? Can Adobe do that? Or any other software?

Yeah I remember Adobe does have a professional converter can do that, but it cost a lot of money. You won't have to convert the pdf file. You can copy the text you want to your word or ppt file for further editing. As for the charts and photos, you can capture from the computer's screen and then put it into your file. In that way you can easily make your own word/ppt.
But if you still want to convert the file, you can refer to the following articles:

You can copy the photos and charts using the PFD "tools>snapshot tool" then paste the item into Word or Power Point.

I don't have experience on [converting PDF file to PowerPoint], but you can try to save every page of the pdf file as image and export to a new PPT document.

That's a common question pdf users've come across.
