Chapter 16. Advanced PowerPoint > Printing Your Presentation

16.3. Printing Your Presentation

Although PowerPoint is primarily meant to throw images onto a monitor or projector, you can also print out your presentations on good old-fashioned paper—which is especially useful, of course, for printing handouts, overheads, and notes. Whatever the format, all printing is done through the same basic procedure: Open the presentation you want to print, make a few adjustments in the Page Setup dialog box and the Print dialog box, then fire away.

16.3.1. Page Setup

Before printing your presentation, you should pop open the hood and take a peek at the Page Setup dialog box (see Figure 16-11). After all, this important window is the engine that controls the size of your slides, whether they're for onscreen viewing or printing. Be sure to make any size adjustments early in the game; if you fiddle with the knobs in Page Setup after the slide has been made, it'll stretch to fit, possibly giving the image a warped or distorted look, or knocking certain graphics off the edges altogether.
