Tech Tip of the Week:  April 26 - May 2, 2015

Creating a PowerPoint Presentation Using Word 2007/2010

To use a Word document to create a PowerPoint presentation


Format the document using Word heading styles


PowerPoint uses the heading styles in your Word document to set up the slides in a presentation  ̶  each Heading 1 becomes the title of a new slide, and each Heading 2 becomes the first level of text


You must apply a heading format to the text you want to include in a slide


You can manually insert heading styles or create a document using Word outline

To create a Word Outline


Click the View menu


Click Outline in the Document Views group


Type your outline using Tab to add subheadings (promote)


Press Shift Tab to decrease the indent (demote)


You can also use the Promote and Demote buttons on the Ribbon


Save your outline

To Insert Outline Text from Word into PowerPoint


In PowerPoint, click the Outline tab in the left pane


Click the Home tab of the Ribbon


In the Slides group, click the arrow next to New Slide


Click Slides from Outline
