Is there a good way to export the speaker notes out of a presentation in Google Docs Presentation and keep the formatting?

The things I tried are

  • Printing—this works fine only if the notes are short. Longer text is being cut off.
  • Export to TXT—this exports all text, but I'm losing formatting.

I recently tried to export my google presentation as a PPT and after that opening it with Keynote (since I am a Mac user). All the speakers notes were captured appropriately without much loss of detail. But when opened with powerpoint on my mac the format all changed.

This is the recommended method:

  • Open your Slides file
  • Click File, then Print settings and preview
  • Click One slide without notes and choose how you would like to print.

I don't have notes that are terribly long, so I don't know if they are cut off if the notes exceed a single page.
