    PowePoint (Office 2000)

    I do the slides and camera ready syllabus copy for a major meeting every year. For the syllabus I have to copy and paste each talk into Adobe Persuasion (which is no longer available) because this program allows me manipulate the number and size of boxes in the handout (4 boxes on the left that are almost 2 times larger than the boxes in PPT). I am attaching a PDF file of a Persuasion file. To my knowledge this feature is not available in PowerPoint. Do you know of any way to do this - it would certainly simplify my life!

    As far as I know, you're stuck with the buit-in handout formats in PowerPoint. But you can export the presentation to Word using File/Send To/Microsoft Word, and manipulate it there. In word, you get a table with 3 columns; by changing the row height, you can get 4 slides on a page.

    Jefferson Scher has posted a macro to change the size of the slides in <post#=134611>post 134611</post#>; you should be able to use it with some tweaking to get the slides the size you like.

    Good heavens, that's a disturbing presentation.

    I can't add much to Hans' post. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> It may aid in your process, though, since it is not so much fun to manipulate shapes in Word, if you add the nice border to the slide master for the presentation before exporting the slides. Actually, on second thought, if you set up a "four slide frames" graphic in the Header of the document that lines up with the slide images, that probably would be easiest.
