Step 2: Change the styles of the text in Word.
Heading 1 style will be the title of each slide. The rest text will be bullet points under the first heading depending on which kind of style you set. PowerPoint 2010 can only convert text with a heading style, so you need to make sure all the text you want to keep in PowerPoint are all setted in headline style. Click Save when you finish.
