Creating PowerPoint Outlines in Microsoft Word

Creating PowerPoint Outlines in Microsoft Word

An outline encompasses the text content within your presentation slides. In some ways, this text is the story of your presentation. In a less poetic description, you may just describe the outline as the sequential structure of text content that you use in a presentation. Whatever description you prefer, the outline does form an ideal starting point for a bunch of slides! PowerPoint can import outlines created in many applications. In this tutorial, we'll explore the procedure of creating a structured outline in Word 2016.

Arrow Circles for PowerPoint

Arrow Circles for PowerPoint

You might have seen these types of arrow segments that form a circle - they are frequently used in slides that show processes, continuous sequences, and cycle diagrams. We bring you these arrow circles with 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 segments each - but these are not merely segmented shapes that you will find elsewhere.

Get it Now

First of all, you get these in two widths each - so you get a variation that lets you choose either a thinner or thicker segment. Additionally, you also get these segments in a regular geometric style - but what sets this apart is that we have also included an organic style so that your segments appear hand-drawn.

Download these Arrow Circles for just $9.99+.
