I have a Power Point presentation and I have put a printer image in the lower right corner. The top slide has "Buttons" with hyper links to each slide. I'd like to put a macro behind the printer image so that when the show is running and the user clicks on the image, THAT SLIDE only will print.

Thanks.

This macro should do it.

Sub printMe()
Dim lngSld As Long
lngSld = SlideShowWindows(1).View.Slide.SlideIndex
With ActivePresentation.PrintOptions
.Ranges.ClearAll
.RangeType = ppPrintSlideRange
.Ranges.Add Start:=lngSld, End:=lngSld
End With
ActivePresentation.PrintOut
End Sub

Open in new window


Don't be tempted by:
.RangeType=ppPrintCurrent which sounds correct but prints the current slide in EDIT view (not always the same) Also you must clear any old Ranges or they will also print.
