In the page settings menu, I changed the paper size from A4 to A3.  However, when I print, PowerPoint continues to print on A4.  Have I missed a setting somewhere?

Try checking the scale to fit paper checkbox on the Print Dialog window.
Also check the printer settings.
Print Dialog window, click Properties, Advanced and check Paper Size.
A lot of printers don't have an A3 option for paper size and you have to set it as custom in the printer settings.

Also, since A3 is a lot larger than A4 (A3 is similar to Tabloid size in the US), you have to be sure that your printer can print to sizes larger than A4 (which is more similar to our US letter size).  What kind of printer do you use?

Printer settings did the trick.  Odd that the page settings weren't enough - that is sufficient for all other Office applications.  Oh well; it works.
