Google Docs to Slides Add-on
Copying and pasting content into individual slides can be tedious. There has to be a better way! Now that Google Apps Script allows us to code Google Slides I have some new templates for you to try! The Doc to Slides Add-on will allow you to take content from a Google Doc and push it to Google Slides.
You will need to start with my Google Doc template. The code is embedded in the document template. Make a copy of the template and then type your content into the Google Doc or copy paste from another source. TIP: Hold down shift when you paste if it pastes funky. (Control Shift V).
If you would like this to be a permanent Add-on and not have to use the template each time please join my Add-on Beta testers group.
Each Line is a New Slide
Add a Space After Paragraph
Instead of pressing enter twice to create a new paragraph, use the toolbar to create spaces between paragraphs for you. Click on the line spacing icon in the toolbar and choose “Add space after paragraph.” This will prevent the creation of blank slides when sent to Google Slides. Tip: Use Control A to select all before setting the spacing.
Authorize the Add-onClick Here to view the authorization process
Since the code has not been verified by Google (I coded it myself personally) they try to give you many warning that they have not verified the code. Scroll down a little and find the “Go to Docs and Slides (unsafe)” (It is safe by the way, I did not code anything malicious.) Click on this to authorize the code.
Provide a Google Slides Link… or Don’t
You will be prompted to paste a link to Google Slides that you have edit access to. If you link to an existing Slides presentation the created slides will be appended to the bottom. If you leave it blank, a new Google Slides will be created for you.
