Note: Certain InDesign properties which can’t be mapped to Word/PowerPoint formats are not converted. Though the layout is maintained as accurately as possible certain properties such as text wrap around object and other layout elements at times are not maintained due to the inherent difference between InDesign and Word/PowerPoint/Keynote.
