Files you import as outlines from Word files should be formatted with
styles in MS Word. If you import a file and the level 2 heads don’t
import as subcategories in PowerPoint, you need to return to the
Word file and check the formatting. If you have trouble importing
outlines with subheads, save the Word files as Word 2003 documents
and try to import again in PowerPoint.
Click the Outline tab in PowerPoint to view the outline
(see Figure 3-4).
