Chapter 16. Presentation Output > Formatting Handout Pages

Formatting Handout Pages

Handout pages are smaller, printed versions of your slides, used to help the audience follow along in your presentation. In Windows, they can consist of 2, 3, 4, 6, or 9 slides per page; in Mac OS, handouts can have 2, 3, or 6 slides per page. Before printing, you may want to add titles, page numbers, or borders. You can perform all these tasks on the Handout Master.

To format handout pages:

1.
Choose View > Master > Handout Master or hold down Shift as you click the Slide Sorter View button.

The Handout Master appears ( Figure 16.25 ).

On the Handout Master toolbar ( Figures 16.26 and 16.27 ), choose the icon representing the number of slides you want to appear on each handout page.

Add any desired background graphics.

4.
When finished, click Close on the Master toolbar ( Figure 16.28 ). Note: If you don't see this toolbar, choose View > Toolbars > Master.
