Using SmartArt

In Chapter 17, you learned how to convert bulleted text to SmartArt. You can do more with SmartArt, however. The idea behind SmartArt is to allow you to create your own professional-looking graphics without a professional graphic designer. The graphics are simple to create, edit, and animate, which makes them easy to work with in your presentation. Plus, you can copy and paste SmartArt graphics created in PowerPoint 2007 into both Microsoft Office Excel 2007 and Microsoft Office Word 2007. You can also reuse SmartArt graphics from those programs in your presentation. Table 18-1 summarizes the SmartArt layout choices.
