Opening a Word document as a new presentation
Opening a Word document as a new presentation
Instead of importing slides from a Word document or other text-based document, as
described in the preceding section, you can simply open the Word document in PowerPoint.
PowerPoint starts a new presentation fi le to hold the imported text. This saves some time
if you are starting a new presentation anyway, and you don’t have any existing slides to
merge with the incoming content.
To open a Word document in PowerPoint, follow these steps:
1. Choose File
Open. The Open screen appears.
2. Select the location where the Word document is stored, such as your SkyDrive
or Computer.
3. Click Browse, and then navigate to the folder containing the Word document.
4. Change the fi le type to All Outlines.
5. Select the document.
6. Click Open. The document outline becomes a PowerPoint presentation, with all
Heading 1 paragraphs becoming slide titles.
You may i nd that you can’t open or insert a Word outline in PowerPoint if it is currently open in Word. This limitation
is an issue only for Word i les, not plain text or other formats.
Importing text from web pages
PowerPoint accepts imported text from several web-page formats, including HTML and
MHTML (Single File Web Page). It is helpful if the data is in an orderly outline format,
or if it was originally created from a PowerPoint fi le, because there will be less cleanup
There are several ways to import from a web page:
Open a web-page fi le as you would an outline (see the preceding section), but set
the fi le type to All Web Pages.
Insert the text from the web page as you would a Word outline (in the Home tab,
click Slides New Slide Slides from Outline).
Reuse slides from a web presentation as you would from any other presentation (in
the Home tab, click Slides New Slide Reuse Slides).
