Set slides to be without white borders when printing
Interest in this type of setting It arises when trying to print a PowerPoint slide, it comes out with white borders. This problem lies mainly in printers, whose design prevents them from printing the content that comes in the margins.
Unfortunately, this is not something that can be completely solved in PowerPoint, but you can at least try a partial solution to this problem. The process is a bit time consuming and does not always work, but it is a secondary route through which to try to channel the problem.
First, you must access the presentation or slide that you want to print without white borders. Now, you must go to the Design section and then to Slide size> Custom slide size. The second thing you should do is select an orientation for your slide according to your needs, in landscape or portrait orientation. You can even change the orientation of a single slide.
Next, you should go to the View section and then to Note Master and now look at the Placeholders section. Once you locate this section, you should dedicate yourself to manually disabling all the placeholders that you don’t want to print. Some examples of this are headers, footer, page number and date.
Now you must carefully drag the slide and thus reduce its size even a little compared to the full page view. Later you must make sure what the final margin will be in the printer and then you must place the margins on both sides of the note pattern in such a way that its size is that.
Finally, to check how the print will look, you can go to File and then Print> Print. If you notice that the slide is not centered you should go to View> Notes Master and from there try to center the slide and then try to print again.
As this is a trial and error process, you will probably have to try again and again until you get results that meet your needs. Another option that may help you is to save the slide as an image and print it as such.
