Prepare the presentation for printing

PowerPoint 365
If you plan to print your presentation in black and white (sometimes it is cheaper and even more informative then printing in color), you should check how it will look like without color.

To see your presentation in black and white without any changes in it, do the following:

    1.    On the View tab, in the Color/Grayscale group, click on the Black and White button (you can also choose Grayscale button):

    2.    In the Black and White tab, in Change Selected Object group, you can fine-tune the grayscale or black-and-white preview:

PowerPoint will remember that setting when printing or outputting the presentation to grayscale or black-and-white source.

To return to the colored view, click the Back to Color View button on the Grayscale or Black and White tab, in the Close group:
