Pro Tip: Import to Papers from any application (Papers2)

In this tutorial you will learn how you can import a document to Papers from any application. In this example I'll be importing a presentation from Keynote.

##2) Converting the PDF into a different media subtype

Once in Papers you can convert this PDF into a different media subtype. In this case, I want to convert the PDF into a presentation. First, drag the the PDF into the 'Media' library.

Papers will then prompt you to select the media subtype. In this case, I want to convert this PDF into a presentation.
