Compare the notepad and the power point presentation you see in the image. All the 4 First lines namely Main Topic, Sub Topic1 and so on get converted to slides. Sub Sub Topic 1, Sub Sub Topic 2 becomes points under each of the slide created. Cool isnt it.

How do I do it ?

Its simple. Microsoft Office has used the power of Tabs to distinguish between header and points below it.This is similar technique I used for creating tables in One Notes quickly.

Step 1: Open the notepad and write all your headings first.

Step 2: Press enter and then tab under every topic and write your sub points. If you want to create another sub point press tab again and enter.

Step 3: Save the notepad. Then right click on the notepad and open with Power Point Application in Microsoft Office.
