How to import content from a Word document to PowerPoint or convert Word document to PowerPoint

You can import content from a Word document to a PowerPoint presentation without much difficulty. This saves you from significant manual effort otherwise required to copy paste content from Word to PowerPoint.

The procedure is pretty straight forward too.

Procedure:

  1. Start PowerPoint.
  2. Click File and then click New (or CTRL+N) to create new presentation.
  3. On the Insert tab, within group Slide, click New Slide. A drop-down appears.
  4. Select Option Slides from Outline…from the drop-down list. You are done.

 

Important: Before you import a Word document to PowerPoint, make sure that the document is properly formatted.

If you are not using any heading styles, PowerPoint places each paragraph in individual slides. Therefore, content should be in single paragraph to find a place in single slide.

If you are using heading styles (heading 1, heading 2, etc.), PowerPoint creates a new slide for each subsequent similar headings i.e. two subsequent Heading 1s will have two different slides in the presentation. The content that would appear along with a Heading 1 slide must have a heading style lower i.e. Heading 2, Heading 3, etc.
