In the top ten tips at the beginning of this course we saw how to create a slideshow out of a Word document. This is the complete opposite. After you've finished creating your slideshow you may wish to work with the narrative inside Word. You may want to turn the presentation into a finished document, flesh out your delivery, or even jazz up the outline using Word processing tools. The good news is that you don't need to retype it all by hand. Above the thumbnails click on the Outline tab. This is what you will see in your Word document. Slides will be exported as a heading 1 style, main bullet points will be heading 2, and if you have a third level of bullets, they will become heading 3, and so forth.
I'll press F12 on my keyboard to open up the Save As window. At the bottom where it says Save as type, I'll click on it to drop it down and choose Outline/RTF and then click Save. Now I'll go to Windows Explorer and there's my Word document. I will double-click on it to open it and here's my PowerPoint presentation inside Word. Now notice that it did maintain all of my font styling. You can select the text, reformat it, right-click on the heading style, and tell it to update to match selection.
And I'll do the same thing for this text right here. I will drop the Font Size down, dropdown my Style Gallery, right-click where it says Heading 2 and update Heading 2 to match the selection, and so forth. That way I can quickly reformat my document to set the appearance. We'll talk more about this Word style shortcut in the Word 2010 Power Shortcuts course.
