# Importing text into PowerPoint drops all text into a single field instead of multiple slides

The most detailed "how-to" that I could find https://www.ellenfinkelstein.com/pptblog/import-text-from-word-or-notepad/ tells us to

• Open a Word or Notepad document.
• Type the content if you haven’t already done so, following the guildines below.
• Make sure each line, whether for a slide title or bulleted text, is on its own line. There should be no blank lines, because these come in as blank slides!
• For each slide title, format the line as Heading 1 in Word or just type in Notepad.
• For each line of bulleted text, format the text as Heading 2 in Word or insert a tab in Notepad
• For each line of indented bulleted text, format the text as Heading 3 in Word or insert 2 tabs in Notepad
• Save the file as a .docx or .txt file.

I have followed those steps:

I added some text that starts like so: (note that the left indents are one or more tabs):

Core Stats Concepts and Procedures
Let's get warmed up: Basic Descriptive Statistics
Define:  N === |X|
Population Mean:  Sum(X_i)/N
Sample Mean:  Sum(S_i)/N
for S_i member of X
Population Standard Deviation:  Sqrt( Sum(X_i- mean(X))^2 /N)
Sample Standard Deviation:  Sqrt( Sum(X_i- mean(X))^2/(N-1))
Warming Up: Additional Basic Descriptive Stats
Mode: the most common observation(s)*
*May be more than one observation with same cardinality
Order Statistics : Statistics based on Sorted observation values
Min   Smallest observation
Median   "Middle" Observation
Simple enough if N odd
If N even then might be taken as the average of the (N-1)/2 + (N+1)/2 observation values
Max   Largest Observation
Quartiles: Expands on the Order Statistics:
The Order Statistics
Plus
(0th Quartile: The min value)
1st Quartile: The (approx) 25 percentile of  observations
2nd Quartile: Same as Median
3rd Quartile: The (approx) 75 percentile of  observations
(4th quartile: The max value)
Inter-Quartile Range:  The difference between 3rd Quartile and 1st Quartile values
** Show example**

The result? Everything is put into a single textbox on a single slide with centering on each line and an overly large font.

This has been attempted about ten times with the same result. Any pointers?

I am on Microsoft PowerPoint for Mac version 16.12 (2018)
