As has been explained in the previous section, to print a slide or any portion of the slide, first of all we need to go to the ‘Print’ dialog box. Now first of all, select if you want to print the ‘Slides’, ‘Handouts’, ‘Notes’ or ‘Outline’ from the ‘Document’ drop-down list under the ‘Print’ area under the ‘General’ tab of the ‘Print’ dialog box.
