Inserting new slides from an outline
All of the Microsoft Offi ce applications work well together, so it’s easy to move content
between them. For example, you can create an outline for a presentation in Microsoft Word
and then import it into PowerPoint. PowerPoint uses the heading styles that you assigned
in Word to decide which items are slide titles and which items are slide content. The
toplevel headings (Heading 1) form the slide titles.
To try this out, open Word, switch to Outline view (View Views Outline), and then
type a short outline of a presentation. Press Tab to demote, or Shift+Tab to promote, a
selected line. Then save your work, go back to PowerPoint, and follow these steps to
import it:
1. On the Home tab in the Slides group, click the lower portion of the New Slide
button to open its menu.
2. Click Slides from Outline. The Insert Outline dialog box opens.
3. Select the fi le containing the outline text that you want to import.
4. Click Insert. PowerPoint imports the outline.
If there were already existing slides in the presentation, they remain untouched. (This
includes any blank slides, and so you might need to delete the blank slide at the
beginning of the presentation after importing.) All of the Heading 1 lines from the outline
become separate slide titles, and all of the subordinate headings become bullet points in
the slides.
Tips for better outline importing
Although PowerPoint can import any text from any Word document, you may not always get
the results that you want or expect. For example, you may have a document that consists
of a series of paragraphs with no heading styles applied. When you import this document
into PowerPoint, it might look something like Figure 21.22.
