Previews of handouts with multiple slides, footer text, and page number.
When you want multiple slides on a page, choose one of the handouts printout types, which include one, two, three, four, six, and nine slides per page. These all conserve paper and preserve visibility.
The default page orientation for handouts is portrait, but you can choose landscape orientation for any of these. You can add headers and footers to these pages, separate from the slides, as shown in the illustration.
All of the handout types have fairly wide margins (built in, you can't set them) for audience notes. The three-slides-per-page type discussed in the next section actually has lines for audience notes.
- Presentation for an audience
- Review by your own team
- Printed archives of your slide shows
- An overview of your show, used in place of speaker notes
Note There is a handouts printout type for one slide per page. How does this differ from the slides printout type? It gives you slightly bigger margins than the slides printout, and allows you to add headers and footers that do not appear on the slide.
