  • Select File > Save & Send > Create Handouts > Create Handouts

This will open Send To Microsoft Word window with different options like Note next to slides, Blank lines next to slides, Notes below slides, Blank lines below slides and Outline only. Except for outline only format, it will reproduce the slide within the Word.

    1. Which step did you stop at, "create handouts"? Didn't you find it or just you were not allowed to click it? I tried this way again, and it went normally.

      2. insert the original image file into word document, keeping the same order in PowerPoint document.
