Converting Lists to Diagrams in Two Clicks

Using a list to create a diagram in just two clicks. It is really that simple. Here is how:

  1. Create a slide in your presentation. You can use just about any layout that includes text capabilities to create the slide, so right-click anywhere within the list area.
  2. From the list that appears, highlight Convert to SmartArt, the SmartArt options appear.

  3. Click the thumbnail that represents the SmartArt diagram that suits your presentation, it will automatically be inserted on your slide in place of the list that you originally created, as shown in below (I select Vertical Picture Accent List). The text list is also opened automatically so you can change any of the points included in the original list.
