Open TXT File With Impress

When I use PowerPoint, I'm able to open a txt file and each line of that file turns into a separate slide.

How can I do this with OpenOffice Impress?

When I try to open a txt file with Impress, that file opens in Writer, not Impress.

Here is a short video showing me opening a txt file with PPT:

Maybe it can't be done but I wanted to ask before throwing in the towel.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Into "Outline" tab, paste your TXT file.
Result: each line set into a separate slide
