Publishing handouts from PowerPoint to Word

I’ve spent a lot of time over the last few weeks preparing a couple of presentions to deliver at the Microsoft UK user groups community day on Wednesday. Even though my slides will act as an aide mémoire, I’ve written full speaker notes, which are included in the slidedecks that I’ll be making available for download, as well as all the extra material that I chopped because it didn’t all fit into the hour-long presentation slots.

Publish handouts from PowerPoint to WordI wanted to print some notes pages from my presentation, but PowerPoint doesn’t allow multiple pages of notes for a single slide. What I discovered it can do though is publish notes pages to Word, where you have much more control over the formatting.

The help that I originally found on the Microsoft website was for PowerPoint 2003 but the image here shows the PowerPoint 2007 equivalent.
