Create a PowerPoint from an Outline Text File

There are many ways to create a PowerPoint file, but correct me if I’m wrong some people use a text file to create the PowerPoint outline before creating the slides on PowerPoint. Creating an outline can be very useful to plan your PowerPoint structure beforehand. Just adding items to the outline and then importing the outline to a PowerPoint presentation can let you save lot of time.

In order to import a text outline as a PowerPoint presentation, you can do the following.

Create a simple outline.txt file in Notepad or any other text editor.

Presentation Title 1
	Item 1.1
	Item 1.2

Presentation Title 2
	Item 2.1
	Item 2.2

When you are done, go to PowerPoint and look for Home tab. Now click on New Slide and then look for Slides from Outline… button. Now you can choose the text file in your hard disk and if you used the formatting above, then the structure will be imported accordingly.

Here you can see an example after importing the .txt file above.
