I need to import three slides from Powerpoint 2007  into Word 2007document and I am not sure how to do this.  I have followed the instructions on the following link but am not able to copy and paste more than one slide
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word-help/link-or-embed-a-powerpoint-slide-HA010120811.aspx

I need to insert into the Appendix section of my Word 2007 document, an example of 3 slides from my powerpoint document, in the "Handouts - 3 slides per page" function so that I can demonstrate what the three slides with some empty text lines with notes, looks like.

Can someone please explain in simple steps how this can be done.  I would rather not print that from Powerpoint into a JPEG and then import it into my Word document, though I will use that as a last resort if I cannot find a suitable answer here.

Thanks.

Hello,

the handout view is not an object that you can copy and paste or link into another application. I think taking a screenshot from the print preview for handouts will be the best way to do this.

I've managed to luckily send the handout view to my snagit screen capture just before your posting so that has kind of worked but for PCs where I dont have snagIT installed, it would be useful to find a proper solution.

Thx.

Without using SnagIt:

Bring up the handout print preview
press the PrtScn (print screen) button
open MS Paint and paste the screenshot
select and copy only the portion of the screen you want to keep
open a new MS Paint instance and paste the cropped version
Save as a GIF or JPG for smaller file size (the native BMP will be huge)

cheers, teylyn

Also the date still shows in the header and page number in the footer despite the various options not being checked in the header and footer options.  Any reason for this and how can I prevent it from showing up on the print preview or the actual document?

You need to edit the handout master. Delete any header of footer entries in the handout master, then do the preview again.
