Creating a Presentation with Word Text

PowerPoint presentations are based on outlines, which you can create using either PowerPoint, or the more extensive outlining tools in Word. You can import any Word document into PowerPoint, although only paragraphs tagged with heading styles become part of the slides. Each Heading 1 style in a Word document becomes the title of a separate PowerPoint slide. Heading 2 becomes the first level of indented text, and so on. If a document contains no styles, PowerPoint uses the paragraph indents to determine a slide structure. You can edit the slides using the usual PowerPoint commands. You can also copy any table you created in Word to a slide.

Create PowerPoint Slides from a Word Document

Open or create a Word document with heading styles.

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

PowerPoint opens; each Heading 1 style text becomes the title of a new slide and Heading 2 style text becomes top-level bullets on a slide, and so forth.

Save the presentation, and then edit it by adding slides, changing slide layouts, and applying a design template.
