An alternative option is to use “Thumbnail View” instead of “Outline View” and choose 3 from the “Columns” drop-down menu. This works more like how you print slides in PowerPoint, but with a few undesirable features like including the backgrounds of your slides and effects like drop shadows and strokes.

If you are using ProPresenter 4 you can still follow the instructions. The only drawback is that ProPresenter 4 will print a new page for ever song. This is a waste of paper and less useful.
