I use PPT 2013 to create documents and would like to print them 2 slides per page in color - two 8.5 X 11 slides per 11 X 17 page (pdf). I have tried everything I can think of, have searched Microsoft and the forum (and Googled in general) and cannot get the slides to use more than 2/3 of the available space (see attached image). So much wasted space, with the slides being too small to really be useful.
Does anyone have any ideas that will work? I could save each slide as an image and paste that image onto a Word doc or into a ledger-sized slide, but am hoping Microsoft finally figured out we would like some control over creating our own handout layouts.

Maybe give these instructions a whirl and see if it helps?

You could be right. Unlike Word for example, you can't play with the margins.
Ok if I had to get creative, I would do the following:
1. Save your presentation as PDF using SAVE COPY AS (not the print as PDF).
2. In Adobe Acrobat, go to your Print settings. Choose an appropriate printer (or you can Print to PDF).
3. Click onto Multiple and change Pages per sheet to 2.
You may get a better result this way.
