How to convert text to SmartArt using Microsoft PowerPoint 2010

To convert text to SmartArt, mark the text you want to convert go to the ”Paragraph” section under the ”Home” tab and click ”Convert to SmartArt”.

Here you can select between a wide range of SmartArt graphics. To see even more options click ”More SmartArt graphics”. Here I will go to the ”Pyramid” group and select a basic pyramid.
