WORD AND POWERPOINT

Create a Document from a Presentation

The Annoyance:

My boss brought back this wonderful presentation from his boss—our master plan for the next week, month, decade, or something. More to the point, he wants me to create a memo of the presentation so that we can issue copies to everyone in the office. I've heard of cut and paste, but this is going to work my fingers raw.

The Fix:

If you need just the text of the presentation, you can simply select it in the Outline pane in PowerPoint, copy it, and paste it into a Word document. Word carries over the PowerPoint heading levels and font formatting, so the document will be laid out with Heading styles. If the size of the font has been adjusted in PowerPoint (for example, to make more text fit on a slide), restore the regular size in Word by selecting the entire document (choose Edit → Select All) and pressing Ctrl+Spacebar.
