Sending an autoabstract from Writer to Impress

If a text document in Writer contains headings formatted with the default Heading paragraph styles, you can use the AutoAbstract feature to copy the headings and a number of subsequent paragraphs to a new presentation. You can specify the number of outline levels as well as the number of paragraphs displayed.

  1. Choose File > Send > AutoAbstract to Presentation.
  2. On the Create AutoAbstract dialog, choose the number of outline levels to be copied to the presentation. For example, if you choose 4 levels, all paragraphs formatted with Heading 1 to Heading 4 are included, along with the number of paragraphs specified in Subpoints per level.
  3. The new presentation opens in Outline view. Click on the Normal tab to populate the slides in the Slides pane.
  4. If some outline levels have too many points to fit on one slide, you can expand those slides as described in Expanding a slide or duplicate the slides and manually change their contents as described in Duplicating a slide.
