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.
- Choose File > Send > AutoAbstract to Presentation.
- 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.
- The new presentation opens in Outline view. Click on the Normal tab to populate the slides in the Slides pane.
- 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.
