Creating Audience Handouts
One of the printing options was for audience
handouts. Handouts are thumbnail size versions of your
slides that you distribute to your audience. You
have the choice of printing one, two, three, four,
six, or nine slides to a page.
Print Range of Slides
When choosing to print a range of slides,
enter the slide numbers separated by a
comma for individual slides, or a dash for a
range of slides.
Handout Page Lines
On the right side of the screen, as seen in Figure
16-21, you see the Preview panel. From here you
can click the Next Page or the Previous Page button
to view the other slides. You can also use the Zoom
slider to enlarge or decrease the preview view.
If you select three slides to a page,
PowerPoint automatically prints lines on the
right side of the page for your audience
members to write their own notes.
