Specifying the optional arguments From, To, Copies, and Collate for the PrintOut method sets the corresponding properties of the PrintOptions object.

Example

Use the PrintOptions property to return the PrintOptions object. The following example prints two uncollated color copies of all the slides (whether visible or hidden) in the active presentation. The example also scales each slide to fit the printed page and frames each slide with a thin border.

Visual Basic for Applications
With ActivePresentation
    With .PrintOptions
        .NumberOfCopies = 2
        .Collate = False
        .PrintColorType = ppPrintColor
        .PrintHiddenSlides = True
        .FitToPage = True
        .FrameSlides = True
        .OutputType = ppPrintOutputSlides
    End With
    .PrintOut
End With

Use the RangeType property to specify whether to print the entire presentation or only a specified part of it. If you want to print only certain slides, set the RangeType property to ppPrintSlideRange, and use the Ranges property to specify which pages to print. The following example prints slides 1, 4, 5, and 6 in the active presentation

Visual Basic for Applications
With ActivePresentation
    With .PrintOptions
        .RangeType = ppPrintSlideRange
        With .Ranges
            .Add 1, 1
            .Add 4, 6
        End With
    End With
    .PrintOut
End With
