How to Put Lines for Notes on PowerPoint Slides


PowerPoint presentations communicate information in a visual and audio manner to an audience, such as a classroom of students or a group of colleagues at a meeting. Yet, the information doesn't always stay with the audience members. Note-taking improves retention of information and allows the students or colleagues to review information later. One way to ensure note-taking during a presentation is to provide the attendees with printouts of the slides with lines for notes.

Things You'll Need

  • Microsoft Word
  • Open your PowerPoint presentation.

  • Click on "File" on the tool bar at the top of the computer screen.

  • Click on "Send To" in the small menu which drops down from the "File" button.

  • Select Microsoft Word.

  • Select the layout "Blank Lines Below Slides." This creates printouts of one slide per page with lines below each slide for note-taking. To print a page of three slides with lines for notes next to each, select the "Three Slides Per Page" layout. Click "Okay" or "Print."
