Print an undated PowerPoint 2007 or 2010 handout PDF

Audiences generally appreciate a printed version of a PowerPoint presentation so they can follow the presenter and have a printed copy to refer to after the presentation is over. To do this, you may need to save your project as a PDF so that it looks exactly like you created it. In the default view, however, PowerPoint shows the date you saved it in the top right corner of every page. If you need a print without date, here’s how to get it in PowerPoint 2007 and 2010.
