Ever wondered how to avoid the overlays when you want a printout from your beamer presentation?
Just put the handout option in your beamer presentation.
If you then want t o also print everything on one page (as Steve did for his Away Day talk) then just do this
where mypresentation.pdf is your beamer presentation which you created with the handout options (so without overlays). In this example 4 beamer slides are printed on one page (2x2).
