Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a Sway from an existing document, part of Sway Essential Training (2015).
- You can create new Sways from scratch.…However, you can also create Sways…using any Word, PowerPoint, or PDF document…that you've previously created.…Now, I say any, that might be a bit of an exaggeration,…because if you have a document that's too big to upload,…you're not going to be able to import it…because this is a web application.…But let's assume that you have a PowerPoint presentation…with a few slides or a PDF,…or a Word document that's largely text,…but that you would like to turn into a Sway.…
Let's start there.…So, I'm going to go to my Desktop,…and I have the Landon Hotel Story.…Now, this is a nice document.…Let me just show you what it looks like real quickly.…We have information about our hotels,…the history of the hotel, and so on.…What I'd like to do is I would like to import that.…
About three pages of text.…That's pretty quick.…Notice, now, a Sway is being created.…I have something that's formatted as a title,…using my headings,…and it got picked up here in Sway.…Here's text, another heading.…
