PowerPoint - Import a Word Outline into PowerPoint
If you've already jotted down an outline of your presentation in Word and now need a quick way to add it to your slides, you can import a Word outline into PowerPoint.
Create an outline in Word
Select View > Outline. This automatically generates an outline and opens the Outlining tools:
If your document has headings (any heading levels from H1-H9), you’ll see those headings organized by level.
If your document doesn’t have headings and subheadings yet, the outline will appear as a bulleted list with a separate bullet for each paragraph or body text. To assign or edit headings, heading levels, and set up your document structure:
Select a bulleted item.
In the Outline Level box, select a heading level as needed.
When finished or to edit your document, select Close Outline View.
Save an outline in Word
To save your document, select Save, name your file, and then select Save once more. Select Close to close your document.
Note: Your Word document must be closed to insert it into a PowerPoint presentation.
Import a Word outline into PowerPoint
Open PowerPoint, and select Home > New Slide.
Select Slides from Outline.
In the Insert Outline dialog box, find and select your Word outline and select Insert.
Note: If your Word document contains no Heading 1 or Heading 2 styles, PowerPoint will create a slide for each paragraph in your content.
