Using Smart Art in Office 2007 and 2010

by on

SmartArt is one of the biggest timesavers in the newer versions of Microsoft® Office. Especially useful for PowerPoint® and Word, it is a powerful way to represent ideas in pictures, which is the preferred learning method for between 1/3 and 2/3 of the population, depending upon which expert you ask.

Let’s take a look at one of the most common types of graphical representations, organizational charts.

1. From the Insert tab, and the Illustrations group, choose SmartArt.
2. Choose the Hierarchy category and choose the Organization Chart diagram.

3. Enter the information in the “Type your text here” area.
4. To “demote” a level, press your tab key.

5. Use the SmartArt Tools Design tab to alter the colors and appearance of your diagram.

A cool trick in PowerPoint® is to convert a set of  bullet points into SmartArt. Just select your bullet points and right clock. Choose Convert to SmartArt. That’s it!
