[Solved] Cannot print multiple slides on a single page

Postby Tregarth » Wed Nov 09, 2016 1:29 pm

I have now finished my talk and would like to print 6 slides to a page for reference during the talk. Previously I have

1. Gone to View/Slide Sorter/Slide Sorter Tab
2. In Slide Sorter Tab gone to File/Print
3. In Page Layout Tab set desired no of pages/sheet (6) from drop down menu
4. Clicked PRINT
The printer menu showed and printing started.

This time in step 3 I clicked print and was taken to a Save window. I entered a file name and clicked SAVE, nothing changed on the title bar but the saved file appeared as an .OXPS file in the required location (Desktop).

I clicked on the saved file, it opened.

Clicked on File in Menu Bar, which listed Print Ctrl+P Clicked on Print

Back to SAVE AS so I seem to be in a loop. The file format is .OXPS, is this significant?

How can I print multiple slides on a single page, please?

Thank you,

Tregarth

On /File /Print /General tab, on the Document dropdown, select "Handouts" and on the "Slides per page" dropdown select "Default" to print the layout you selected on the "Handouts" tab.

Thank you for your prompt and useful reply reply, I have now made the printouts.

I found your reply a little cryptic so I have expanded your response as follows:

1. In View/Slide Sorter/Slide Sorter Tab
2. Go to File / Print
3. Set No of pages / Sheet (I used 6.)
4. Go to General tab
5. Select printer
6. PRINT

It seems that someone has added an extra step in the recent "improvement".

I appreciate your help.

Thank you

My reply was based and prepared using on the screens used in the Linux version of OpenOffice 4.1.3
