Can I add a background color to the actual handout
page, or hide information like the page number?
Yes. Click the View tab and then click Handout Master
(see Chapter 9). You can enable ( ) or disable ( )
page information by clicking the check boxes in the
Placeholders group on the Handout Master tab. Click
Background Styles and click a background from the

How many slides should I include per page
in a handout?
Two slides per page ensures that your audience
can read the handout and leaves plenty of
space for notes. If you have only a few bullet
points per slide, you may be able to read the
handout with four slides per page.
