I have several Classic Slideshow presentations originally created 3 or 4 years ago. I would like to convert these to ordinary Mathematica notebooks, removing all the slideshow-related paraphernalia including page breaks, etc.

If I simply select Format > Stylesheet > Default, the separate slides are still there, labelled "Slide 1 of 34" etc.. Is it then just a matter of manually removing all the page breaks, or is there more to it?

Related to this, (though it's not what I want to do at present), what is the best way to convert from a classic slideshow to the newer Presentation style? Will Format > Stylesheet > PresenterTools do the job correctly?

  • $\begingroup$ Slides appear to be separated by an empty cell with the SlideShowNavigationBar style. These are easily removed with a text editor (which works). I don't know a good way to remove them in Mma, but presumably you can select and delete them all. $\endgroup$

I think I might have the answer you are asking for.

  1. Choose Palettes in the toolbar

  2. Select the Classic Slide show.

  3. Under Settings, click View Environment.

  4. Select Printout.

Here are some pics that will show how to do that.
