PowerPoint 2016 (O365) - Printing to HP LJ M475 is very very slow

Hardware is a dell laptop - Win 7 Pro 64bit

When user prints a PP document the printer takes about 1 minute to spit out first page, then it take another minute for each page after that.

Printer is networked - set up as a TCP/IP printer to the Ip address (Also connected it via USB same issue)

Installed both PCL6 and Universal drivers

Word and other applications seem to print fine - just PowerPoint

I tried most suggestions that were available via my Google-fu abilities

Is it slow for all PPT files or just a specific PPT file.

If you start a new blank file and type a couple of words, does it print quickly?
Travis Hahn

90% of the PP files are slow

Yes - it has to have multiple slides for the issue to really show up

I'm wondering what the common denominator is. Could it be your corporate template?

Sometimes printers have difficulty with transparency and semitransparent gradients. Are there any of those on the background of your template? Or perhaps an oversized logo or something?
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

Thats possible - it is a template.  If so how do I remove or "flatten" those?

I think you were right or the file got corrupt somehow.  I went back to the creator of the slide deck and we "packaged" the images onto the deck and we got better results

Thank you
