Creating a New Sway

You can create a new Sway from scratch or by importing existing content from another application.

Create a New Sway from Scratch

The most common way to create a new Sway is from scratch. You start with a blank canvas and add your own text and media files.

  1. Click Sway if you aren’t already on the My Sways page.
  2. Click Create New. Note that there are two options for this on the screen.

  3. A blank Sway storyline with a title card opens; enter a title for your new Sway.

Create a New Sway by Importing Content

You can import existing content from Word, PowerPoint, or a PDF. Sway converts this content into cards on the storyline, which you can then modify.

  1. Click Sway, if you aren’t already on the My Sways page.
  2. Click Import.

  3. In the Open dialog box, select the file you want to import.
  4. Click the Open button.

  5. Sway displays the imported content on a new storyline; edit this content as desired.
