Chapter 9. Creating a PowerPoint Present... > Converting Text into a SmartArt Grap...

Converting Text into a SmartArt Graphic

An excellent way to dramatically improve the appearance of the slides in your presentation is to convert headings and bulleted lists into SmartArt graphics. That way, you’ll have an organized structure and professional-looking graphics.

Create the Graphic

Place all the text that you’ll be using in the graphic in one text box, and click in the text box to select it if it isn’t already selected.

On the Home tab, click the Convert To SmartArt Graphic button, and choose the design you want from the gallery that appears. If you don’t see a design you want, click More SmartArt Graphics in the gallery, and use the Choose A SmartArt Graphic dialog box to select the graphic you want.

Use the SmartArt Tools Design and Format tabs to modify the SmartArt to the look you want.

Drag a Sizing handle on the border of the SmartArt graphic if you want to change its size, and then drag a border to move the SmartArt to the location you want.
