I am preparing for a presentation at a conference and was trying to print out my slides with the notes next to them in a relatively compact manner. Wow, it was not very intuitive. I tried printing the slides and it had an option for Slides with notes, but it was one slide per page; not very compact. That was it, no other options.
I did some poking around and some searching and came across an option to Create Handouts. Viola! This is what I want, though, I'm writing this post while I wait for it to load. It basically takes the presentation and sends it to Word so you can edit it there and then print it out. There must be something wrong with my presentation because loading the individual slides and especially trying to send it to Word is taking forever and failing at times. It finally worked after I split the presentation in half.
In the end, the Create Handouts option gave me what I wanted. Small slides with the notes next to it.
