Printing handouts for your audience can be an effective way to remind them of the key elements of your presentation. Perhaps the most useful handout format is the 3 per page layout. When you select this layout, PowerPoint includes 3 slide miniatures per page and automatically adds lines to the right where your audience can add their own notes. Example:

To create handouts similar to that shown at right, edit the Handout Master to add any special header or footer information desired then choose to print your handouts 3 per page. It's that easy!

For even more choices, you can create handouts in Microsoft Word by sending your details from PowerPoint.
