In this video, staff author Jess Stratton shows users how to use the built in Outline mode feature to work with text only in both PowerPoint and Microsot Word, and import into PowerPoint as a pre-made presentation.
- [Narrator] My name is Jess Stratton…and welcome to PowerPoint tips weekly.…Outline view in PowerPoint is a great way…to edit the text in your slides without worrying…about the visual clutter of images.…To get in to outline view, click the view ribbon tab…in PowerPoint and choose outline view on the left hand side.…You'll be brought to a visual overview of your slide.…While you can still see and work with the slide…on the right hand side,…sometimes it's much easier to see the text…and work with it directly.…In fact if I scroll down,…you can see entire paragraphs of text.…
You can even edit it in place right from here.…I'll scroll all the way to the bottom.…You can even work on your presentation by adding new slides.…I'll click my cursor to the very end of the presentation.…If I hit the enter key on my keyboard,…a new slide is created and I can add a title.…I can hit the enter key again and this time,…I'll hit the tab key.…Now it becomes a subheading of that slide.…
While it is great to be able to edit slides this way,…
