Webinar Recording Details


People call them handouts, leave-behinds, slide docs, downloadables, or just “documents.” When you use PowerPoint to create something for distribution and meant to be read by a single person at any given time, it’s not really a presentation anymore—it’s a document. And it should be designed and treated as such. You could use InDesign or Word, but PowerPoint is actually surprisingly powerful for this format when you learn a few tricks and approaches. Microsoft PowerPoint MVP Nolan Haims will show you how to use PowerPoint as a desktop publishing tool to create effective print and PDF materials.

Attendees will learn:
  • The characteristics of print design and layout and what can be accomplished in PowerPoint
  • How to design standalone print documents in PowerPoint at any page size
  • Multiple strategies for creating companion handouts for on-screen presentations
  • How to setup and use paragraph styles in PowerPoint (yes, it’s possible!)
