or as a movie

  • With the presentation open, choose Share > Send a Copy (from the menu at the top of the screen), then choose an option.

  • Click a format, then specify settings:

PowerPoint has some loss of fidelity: To restrict access to the copy, select the “Require password to open” checkbox, then enter the requested information. If the file needs to be compatible with an older version of PowerPoint (1997-2003), click Advanced Options, then choose .ppt from the pop-up menu.

Movies play with fidelity but are larger: QuickTime: If your presentation includes a recorded narration, click the Playback pop-up menu, then choose Slideshow Recording. All other presentations are set to be self-playing and advance through the slides or builds based on the time intervals you enter. Builds and transitions that are already set to advance following another build or transition aren’t affected by these time intervals.

PDF's are suitable for handouts as screen presentation with no transition effects: Choose an image quality—the higher the image quality, the larger the file size of the exported copy. To restrict access to the copy, select the “Require password to open” checkbox, then enter the requested information. Each slide appears on its own page of the PDF. To have each build print on its own page, in the same order it appears in the presentation, select “Print each stage of builds.”
