Step 3: Start Creating

You can create a new Sway from scratch, from content in an existing file, or from a topic.

  1. Select Get started.

  2. On the Welcome to Sway page, select one of the following:

    • Create New - to start from scratch.

    • Start from a topic - to have Sway provide base content for you. Type your topic in the Enter a topic box, and then select Create outline.

      Note: If Sway can’t find enough public data for the topic, Sway suggests related topics. Select the most relevant topic, and then select Create Outline.

    • Start from a document - to import content from an existing file. Browse to and select the file, and then select Open.
