How to Print Out in PowerPoint With Comments On

Printing PowerPoint presentations with visible comments and mark-up is a special print function. PowerPoint allows you to print clean versions of each slide, with or without notes. You can also print slides that reflect the comments you or other users have inserted into the file. Reasons to do this include wanting to see the mark-up as you perfect the first few drafts of your presentation, or using the mark-up as reference as you present your PowerPoint to an audience.
