Creating a Word Outline from a Presentation

You can send both your notes and slides to Word so that you can use a full array of word processing tools. This is especially handy when you are developing more detailed materials, such as training presentations and manuals. By default, PowerPoint pastes the presentation into the Word document. If you change the presentation after sending it to Word, the changes you make to the presentation are not reflected in the Word document. If you click the Paste Link option in the Send To Microsoft Office Word dialog box, however, you create a link between the Word document and the presentation, so that changes you make in one are reflected in the other.

Create a Word Document from a PowerPoint Presentation

Open the PowerPoint presentation you want to use as a Word document.

Click the File menu, point to Send To, and then click Microsoft Office Word.

Click the Outline Only option.

Click the Paste option if you want to make changes to only the Word copy. Click the Paste Link option if you want to make changes to both the Word and PowerPoint copies at one time.

Click OK to save the slide text as a Word file, start Word, and then open the file.
