OpenOffice presentation printing to handouts

Is there a way to print only 3 slides per page instead of 4? Or to resize those 4 slides to be larger on that one page?

The problem is that the amount of slides is too big to print one per page, but when I choose 4 per page, those 4 slides are really small. I know Powerpoint could do this with reasonable sizes, so it made me wonder if OOo could.

Thanks in advance,

I just went through this. Go into layout view, choose 3 slides to a page. Highlight one. Then Format/Position and Size/ and de-select "protect size" -- and select "keep ratio" --now you can resize them and it should affect each page you print.
