Directly Send Word 2010 Document To PowerPoint 2010

PowerPoint 2010 provides a lot of features and tools to make an awesome presentation, creating one from the scratch takes a lot of time to summarize the content of the detailed document. Word 2010 now lets user send the document content instantly to PowerPoint presentation slide which lessens the time for creating a presentation. Also it saves multiple copy/paste operations.

In order to use this feature, you need to make this feature apparent in Word Quick Access toolbar, because it is concealed by default. Navigate to Quick Access toolbar and click small drop-down button to select More Commands.

Now scroll-down the list and find Send to Microsoft PowerPoint command. Select it and click Add (>>) to show it on Quick Access toolbar pane. Once added, hit OK.

    this was very useful. i love it.

  • Pat

    Useful info thanks.

  • Matthew Schwartz

    Exactly what I was looking for.  Unfortunately Word documents don’t convert to Powerpoint very well if you have lots of graphics.

    • Donald

      I agree. It is not very useful if you have lots of graphics to convert

  • Dennisk

    As mentioned, need to expand this tool so it will transfer graphics etc — one page to one slide

    This site is terrible.  I inquired how to insert a WORD document into a PowerPoint document. The instruction states:  “Navigate to Quick Access Toolbar”.  But it does not state whether this toolbar is in WORD and/or in PowerPoint.   I can find no such toolbar in either application of Office 2010.  It may be in the author’s imagination.  The idiot who wrote these instructions is is talking to him or herself and assumes that the reader knows everything he or she knows. This is the classic error of bad directions.  Skip this site and avoid a lot of time-wasting instruction you will never be able to follow.

      This site is not terrible, it clearly states ‘in word navigate to the quick access toolbar’ so you know the toolbar you are looking for is in word.  Next it shows a picture of the toolbar being used, its only a small icon but its clear in the image, look for that small icon on the toolbar at the top of your screen.  

      As a learner you should be looking on the Internet or somewhere for any terms you don’t understand, to be useful a site like this needs to assume a basic knowledge of the word interface, it is assumed that you know what a toolbar is etc. otherwise explaining anything would need a novel writing if everything had to be described for beginners.  

      If you don’t know what a toolbar is then you are not at the level where you should be looking at customising buttons on it.  Gain a basic understanding of the tool you are using before criticising this site because of  your lack of knowledge.

          I got there fine but the command isn’t there. I really hate Microsoft sometimes. Nothing is where they claim it is.

    In only shows that MS Word and PP suck, who would think you couldn’t convert the whole doc with graphics into PowerPoint… stupid!

  • Lori

    I found this very helpful and easy to understand, thank you

    • navdeep

      i hv pressed ok button…now how to retrive that file in powerpoint???

  • dollbo

    Thank you! I found this very helpful and easy to follow. However, I keep getting an error message. Here is the message: No text converter is installed for this file type. I am using a MS Word 2010 document. Any ideas?

    • Vachtel

      same here. did you manage to fix it?

  • crisgil

    No matter what I try (this method, saving as rtf and opening with powerpoint, opening from word…) I keep getting the message that there are no converters for this type of file. However, I’ve changed the whole office 2010 installation, installing everything from the hard drive (took a whole lot of hard drive), with no success. Can anyone tell me which converters it is talking about and where to get them?
