Save *.pptx as pdf in black and white

Hi everyone,

This seems like an easy question but it gets me going for a while now. I have Office 2007 installed on my system with the "Save As PDF" add-in. Creating PDF's from the PowerPoint files is no problem, but now we want to save them without the background colors (conform with 'print as black and white').

Is there any way to become the same result as 'print as black and white 'with this add-in?

Best Regards,
Steven Bruneel

I don't think there's a way to do B/W when saving as PDF.

When you choose Office Button | Save As and choose PDF or XPS, on the next dialog box you can click Options. There you can opt to save in Handouts or slides or notes pages view, and you have options to include hidden slides and such, but there's no option for black and white.

You could apply the grayscale color scheme to your presentation before saving as PDF. It's on the Design tab in the Colors dropdown. Of course, this will only be effective if you've used the presentation's color scheme when you created the presentation.
