Start a Word document to Present later
Let’s think of our delivery process from another angle now.
You have a lot of information and not all of it will be used in the delivery. However, you do need visuals in the form of diagrams, statistics, pictures and excel spreadsheets.
The amount of content is extensive and will fill 20 or more pages.
Your document is going to incorporate a table of contents and Heading Styles. This part is a must the creating of heading styles that is.
In order to transfer your Microsoft Word document into a PowerPoint presentation you are going to need to add a command button to the Quick Access Tool Bar.
(NB: The bar at the very top of the screen with the save icon on it.)
File/ Options/ Quick Access Toolbar. Change Popular command for All Command. It is going to be a lot quicker if you select one item from the list on the left and press the first letter of what you are trying to get to.
Press S. You should now be where all the s items start.
Keep going down till you see “Send to PowerPoint”.
Now move it to the right by pressing the Add command. Look at the very top you now have a new icon.
Press the “Send to PowerPoint” command button and watch below for the PowerPoint icon to activate. It should have now created a PowerPoint presentation using the Heading Style 1 as the Title Place holder and any Heading Styles 2 and so on as bullet points.
Ok, don’t expect perfection. This is computers we are talking about. However, you should have all the critical components to enhance your PowerPoint presentation further by setting animation and transition effects.
Pictures and Smart Art alike are not going to transfer across, we don’t have that much magic – yet.
It is now up to you to go through and start culling what is going to be a keep or a through away.
