Convert text to table

Save time when you need to change a textbox of information on your PowerPoint slide into a table. This PPT Productivity feature lets you easily convert text to table format in PowerPoint.

Select the textbox on your PowerPoint slide containing the text you would like to convert to a table. Click the Convert to table feature and a popup box with options will appear. Simply choose the delimiter (tab, comma, none or enter custom delimited) and formatting actions and your table will appear. For example - choose tab delimiter to convert a bulleted or numbered list in a text box to a table. Each line will be converted to a separate row.

Formatting options include making the table height the same as the text box height; option for the table replacing the text box and option regarding keeping the formatting of the text box.

Productivity Tip

Deselect the keep formatting option if you want the table to be inserted using your presentation theme's table format.
