Output Notes from PowerPoint

Created: Saturday, April 8, 2006, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 7:38 am



I’m looking for a way to output my PowerPoint notes alone, or a presentation without the metafile overhead. I need the slides plus the notes – or even a way to get the notes without anything else. You’ll need to have Microsoft Word installed on your system in addition to Microsoft PowerPoint for this trick to work:

  1. Open your presentation and choose File Send to Microsoft (Office) Word.
  2. Select the Notes next to slides option, and click OK.
  3. Microsoft Word creates a table with slide thumbnails and notes. Delete the unnecessary column in the resulting Word table that includes the thumbnails – to do that, select the entire column, right-click and choose Delete Columns.
  4. Choose Table Convert Table to Text… Choose your text separator (or choose a custom separator).
