PPT Images too big when using Insert as Printout

    Hey Everyone,

    I'm just trying to insert my prof's ppt notes into one note so I can take my
    notes next to them, but the images are always way too big when I use the
    insert as printout option. I know that I can just resize each image
    individually, but with lectures ranging from 45 slides to 95 slides.... it's
    just way too time-consuming. Is there something I can do so that the
    'printouts' are smaller?

    Look at the Printout Manager Powertoy:

    Isn't there also a PPTtoOneNote powertoy out there? I think it was
    written around ON 2003 but should still work.

    IIRC it's not of use anymore.

    Meaning it doesn't work with 2010, or it's been superseded by
    something else?

    I just tested it.
    The updated version for ON2007 works fine under ON2010 too.

    What I had meant to say was that with the really versatile
    "PrintoutManager" one would not really need it anymore. I for one had
    not used it anymore since the PrintoutManager appeared.

    But I must revise this.
    Both tools have their advantages:
    (a) The PrintoutManager allows for fine tuning how the printouts appear
    in the page.
    (aa) how many slides per page;
    (bb) how many columns;
    (cc) the size.

    (b) The PP2One tool outs all if the output in just on one page with a
    fixed width.
    However, it creates additional information and makes commenting much
    easier:
    (aa) there are the options to insert the text of a slide as well as the
    text of the speaker's notes.
    It shows the text exactly and works ways better than inserting the text
    created by the automatic OCR.
    (bb) As the tool puts the result in *tables*, it was easier to
    comment/annotate the slides.

    My conclusion is that the usage if either tool depends on what one wants
    to do with the imported slides.

    That's always what it boils down to, isn't it? Or at least it SEEMS
    like it to me. :)
