Right-Click Convert To SmartArt in PowerPoint 07

Here’s yet another great one for my PowerPoint 2007 users.

Ever have a bulleted or numbered list and wish that you’d thought to put it into SmartArt from the beginning?

Well don’t start kicking yourself for not thinking of it earlier and don’t retype it all into a diagram. In fact, don’t even start with the copy / paste thing… you really don’t need any of that.

What you really need is a right-click.

Yep – that’s what I said – a simple right-click will do the trick.

– First highlight the list.

– Now it’s time to right-click on the list.


– You’re looking for the Convert to SmartArt choice.

– A palette of choices will open, choose one. (Or, if you don’t see what you want, you can always choose More SmartArt Graphics at the bottom.)

At any rate, choose a graphic that works and Presto – Change – O! You’ve converted your list in the “smartest” possible way that I can think of.
