Import content into Sway

In Sway, you can easily reuse content from any of your existing documents and files. By importing such content, you can add text, images, tables, and graphs from your documents and combine it with additional content or media. Sway can import content from Word documents, PowerPoint presentations, and Adobe PDF (Portable Document Format) files.

You can create a new Sway from an imported document or file, or you can add the contents of a document or file to an existing Sway.

Create a new Sway from a document or file

  1. If necessary, sign in to Sway.

  2. On the My Sways screen, click Import.

  3. In the Choose File to Upload dialog box, navigate to the document or file you want to import, select it, and then click Open.

    Note: The amount of time it takes Sway to process the imported content depends on the complexity and size of the selected file.

  4. When the content appears on your Sway Storyline, click Preview to see how Sway has formatted the imported content. You can change anything you want on the Storyline, or click Remix to let Sway apply a different design.

Import a document or file into an existing Sway

    • Click Upload to insert a selected document or file from your computer or device.

    Note: The amount of time it takes Sway to process the imported content depends on the complexity and size of the selected file.
