How to Turn a Bulleted List into a Diagram on Your PowerPoint 2007 Slide

PowerPoint allows you to convert a bulleted list into SmartArt. For example, suppose you’re puttering along in a PowerPoint presentation, gazing at the text, when suddenly it strikes you — a bulleted list in a text frame or text box would work much better as a diagram. For those occasions, PowerPoint provides the Convert to SmartArt button. By clicking this button, you can turn the text in a text frame or text box into a diagram. If the text frame or box contains a bulleted list, each bulleted item becomes a diagram shape.

Follow these steps to turn a text frame or text box into a diagram:

  1. Select the text frame or text box.

  2. Click the Home tab.

  3. Click the Convert to SmartArt button.

    You see a drop-down list with basic diagram choices.

  4. Either select a diagram on the list or choose More SmartArt Graphics to open the Choose a SmartArt Graphic dialog box and select a diagram there.
