How do I print only notes on powerpoint presentation?

Posted on May 26, 2009. Filed under: Powerpoint Tips | Tags: |

There is no setting for that in PowerPoint, but there are some workarounds you can do.

I’ve tried deleting the Side Image from the Notes Master, but it doesn’t work! The workaround, if you want notes one slide’s worth per page, is to View the Notes Master, select the Slide Image placeholder and scale it down teeny-tiny – almost invisible – and shove it off to the side or bottom or wherever, and then reposition the notes text placeholder where you want it.

If you want a document with continuous notes, not one per page, you can let PowerPoint work with Word and create it (though there is still some tweaking needed)…

PowerPoint XP/2003: File pulldown menu –> Send To –> Microsoft Word

PowerPoint 2007: round Office pulldown menu -> Publish –> Create Handouts in Microsoft Office Word

All versions are the same from here on: select “Notes Next to Slides.” Hit okay. Word launches and your computer just does its own thing. At the end, your Word document still has a column of slide miniatures and a column of notes, but it’s a table, so all you need to do is delete the column of slide miniatures (all at once – not one-by-one) and format the remaining text column the way you want.
