Powerpoint handouts should be possible to print with text

    Quite often we, at my work, need to print out a manuscript for a
    presentation. They normally contain a lot more than the slides themselves.

    The best solution for us would be a possibility to export the slides to a
    word document that looks pretty much like the 3-slide handout. With the
    slides as pictures that we can write around, i.e. both above and below as
    well as beside, our scripts can easily be finished - and when it is a product
    feature, the files could be more sound. Today, we need to copy one slide at
    the time from .ppt to .doc, fix the text positioning, position the picture
    and start to write. For a two day seminar, that takes a few hours, the Word
    file becomes enormous and easily corrupted.

    Another, more restricting, alternative is that the notes (from ppt) are
    printed beside and below the slide on a handout alternative directly in
    Powerpoint.

    PowerPoint's Send To Word feature will do precisely this and gives you more options than
    the normal handouts feature does.

    In 2003, File | Send To | Microsoft Office Word

    In 2007, Office Button | Publish | Create Handouts in MS Word
