Slide Into Word: A kinder, gentler Send To Word from PowerPoint MVP Bill Dilworth
PowerPoint's Send To Word feature can be very handy at times.
PowerPoint's Send To Word feature can also be slow and produce huge, unweildy Word documents.
And it's missing a few features that Bill Dilworth thought it should have.
Solution? Bill rolled his own. He calls it Slide Into Word and if you click the link, he'll tell you all about it and even let you try a fully functional demo for free.
Slide Into Word creates a Microsoft Wordİ document that's pre-formatted to include a heading, the main table, and page numbering. The table contains three columns with slide numbering, images of the slides in your presentation (in either full color or gray scale), and a notes column (either notes from the notes section of the presentation, or blank lines for personal note-taking). Other user selectable options include:
- Changeable sizing of slide images
- An indication of how many manual animation advances are on each slide
- An indication of if any objects are off the viewable area of the slide
- Automatically saving the Word file to the same directory as the PowerPoint file
