Sometimes it’s just too confining to work with the limited handout options in Power­­Point. Wouldn’t it be great to have the flexibility of Word to create handouts?

This option is built into Power­­Point already. From the File menu (2010), click Save & Send  (2013-Export, 2007-Publish) and choose Create Hand­­outs. Choose a starting layout. Once it opens in Word, you can make any adjust­­ments you like to the appearance. I choose the lines below the slide option. In Word, enlarge the slide image and widen the lines for more writing space. You can even combine slides on a page where it makes sense.
