    Duplex Print with PowerPoint? (XP SP-2)

    Hi,

    How can one print duplex with PPoint?
    Attached scrn. shot of PPoint's Print Dialogue Box doesn't show an option to specify Odd or Even pages!

    m.q.

    Click the Properties button shown in your screenshot, to the right of the name of the selected printer. The Properties dialog is printer-specific, so you'll have to find the duplex option yourself.

    Hi,

    I guess there's no option to print just ODDs or EVENs?

    m.q.

    If the presentation is not too large, you could first enter 1,3,5,7,9,11 (etc.) in the Slides box and print, then turn the printed pages over in the printer, and then enter 2,4,6,8,10,12 (etc.) in the Slides box and print.

    You can also use File | Send To | Microsoft Word, then use the odd/even option when printing from Word.

    Finally, you could create a macro in Powerpoint to print odd and even pages separately. If you want to print one slide per page, this might do it:

    Sub PrintOddEven()
    PrintOneType 1
    MsgBox "Odd pages printed"
    PrintOneType 2
    MsgBox "Even pages printed"
    End Sub

    Sub PrintOneType(iType As Integer)
    Dim i As Integer
    With ActivePresentation.PrintOptions
    .RangeType = ppPrintSlideRange
    With .Ranges
    .ClearAll
    For i = iType To ActivePresentation.Slides.Count Step 2
    .Add i, i
    Next i
    End With
    End With
    ActivePresentation.PrintOut
    End Sub

    You will have to adapt this if you want other types of printout.
