Print a Presentation
There are many options for printing a presentation. Steps to print a presentation are as follows:
Slides Sized For: This lets you set the size of your slides based on how you plan to present them. The common standard form is an aspect ratio of 4:3. Other options on this drop-down list include different screen ratios, suitable for wide-screen displays, standard sized paper, and even 35-mm slides.
Width: Set a custom width for your slides.
Height: Set a custom height for your slides.
Number Slides From: If your slides include numbers, this option lets you set the number for the first slide. The default is 1.
Orientation: Set the orientation to portrait (tall and skinny) or landscape (short and fat). You can set the setting separately for your slides, handouts, and notes. The most common setting is for the slides to use landscape orientation and the notes and handouts to use portrait.
It is the easier to make similar changes to all the slides and to use the specific layout. To accomplish it we can make changes in master slide which is the common link to all the slides. Example if we want to change bullet style of all the slides we can change bullet style in the master slide and all the slides will have the same bullet styles.
