Printing slides from PowerPoint can result in lots of wasted paper. Fortunately, there are printing options that allow you to print several slides on each page. These multislide handouts are great for conserving resources. You can also configure your handouts, and then print them as PDF files that you can email to people. With the options in this movie, you may be able to avoid printing entirely.
- [Nick] Welcome to PowerPoint Tips Weekly.…I'm Nick Brazzi.…I hate waste, so this week, I wanted to talk…about printing handouts in PowerPoint…in a way that will save paper as much as possible.…We're going to start on Windows,…but we will look at some options on a Macintosh as well.…But first, here in PowerPoint for Windows,…I want to go into the backstage view.…I'll do that by hitting the File button near the top left,…then I'll go to Print.…Before you print anything in PowerPoint,…I think you should consider what your needs are.…Then, we can see if we can minimize the amount…of paper that you'll use.…
Most of this boils down to a really useful option…that's buried in a menu.…I'm looking for this menu here,…it's currently set to Full Page Slides.…I can click on that to open it up.…Now, of course, this default option…will print one slide per page,…which will give you the best quality reproduction,…but if you just need something for reference or for notes,…you can save a lot of paper by printing out…four slides per page, or six, or nine slides per page.…
