Popular Word Videos by Chris Menard

The video above is one of Chris Menard’s most popular videos. Moreover, it shows one of the most requested features which is how to insert a Word document into PowerPoint. Using this method will automatically generate your slides compared to copy and paste. Heading 1 Style becomes a new slide, Heading 2 Styles become a 1st level bullet. If you are using a MAC, you have to save your Word document as Rich Text Format (RTF).
