Question ppt editor with save & highlight features

Hey guys! & the rare lady I need some help. I bought my 10.1 specifically for class. My instructors use ppts & I'd rather not have to print them all off. I was just using Polaris 5 and taking notes, using the highlighter function and was LOVING it!! Until it unexpectedly closed on me & didn't save any of my notes. I had the setting checked to save a backup if edits were made but I noticed a pop-up saying save edits weren't available with the document open. Not sure if it was ppt or pptx. I've tried several options in the play store & none do what I want. Any suggestions? I've tried office suite, king something, pearl something. I know that's not specific but my mind is flooded with programs I've tried & anatomy (I'm in class right now)
PS I'm a GIRL!

If you don't need to edit ppt documents and only need to annotate, it's better to save them as pdf and use pdf annotation apps.

Check out office suite pro, its on sale in the playstore for 99 cents. I use it for ppts a lot.

I just downloaded the trial. I can't write on the ppts and if I can't write, I can't highlight. I need to be able to highlight.

Next... I'll try the pdf option.

If you can get your lecture files in pdf format I think adobe reader or ezpdf is one of the better options. I currently use adobe reader with dropbox and its pretty amazing.

You don't have to get in pdf format, you can convert them to pdf on the fly, on tablet.
