Product/Version: PowerPoint 2003 for Windows

OS: Windows XP and higher






Creating outlines for PowerPoint in various external applications lets you stay away from distractions in PowerPoint-land. Once you have the outlines done, it's very easy to import it in the form of slides into PowerPoint. While this import process works the same way in all versions of PowerPoint, there are small interface changes. In this tutorial, we'll show you how to import outlines in PowerPoint 2003 for Windows:

  1. Launch PowerPoint (see Figure 1). Note that the program typically starts with an empty slide.
  2. PowerPoint 2003
    Figure 1: PowerPoint 2003
  3. From the main menu choose Insert | Slides from Outline (see Figure 2).
  4. Slides from Outline
    Figure 2: Slides from Outline
  5. This will open the Insert Outline dialog box that you can see in Figure 3. Select the outline file and click on the Insert button.
  6. Insert Outline dialog box

  7. This will import the outlines into PowerPoint as slides (see Figure 4). Do note that this process only adds slides to an existing presentation, and does not replace any existing slides (you can still see the empty, first slide from Figure 1).
