Default Word to Powerpoint format problem


I want to convert a word document to PowerPoint. I use office 365.

In my previous version of MS Word I clicked on "send to Microsoft PowerPoint" and the document got converted. In Word 365 I still have that button but nothing happens when I click on it.

After doing some research I found out that I need to use the online version of word now. There is the "export to PowerPoint" function under "export".

When exporting it there, it unfortunately screws up my formatting and I can't find a way to fix it.

My word doc looks like this:

Sentence 1

Sentence 2

Sentence 3

Sentence 4


I want each sentence on a different slide. I have put everything in headline 1. Yet unfortunately, I only get the first sentence on its own slide. Sentence 2,3 and 4 are on the same slide.

I hope I have explained my problem well enough to be understood.

Can anyone explain me what I need to change in order to get this done?

You do not have to use the online version you may need to add the send to ppt to the QAt.

However you should use Heading1 style for a Title of a new slide and Title 2 style for the text

Title (in H1)
text (In H2)
Text2 (in H2)
New slide Title (in H1)
