Does anyone know how to tell beamer to produce a handout from a beamer file, i.e., print one page for each full screen and not one page for each line that is added?

Could you edit your title so that it reflects your actual question. Using only Scientific Workplace 5.5 is not sufficient. On the other hand, have you consulted the help file for Scientific Workplace? Or the website for it? – azetina Nov 8 '12 at 3:42
Can you please provide a simple small document showing how are you currently producing the handout? – Gonzalo Medina Nov 8 '12 at 3:49

I don't know this software, but, if you have access to the preamble of your document, you have just to add the option [handout] in your \documentclass declaration




\item one
\item two
\item three

In Scientific Workplace 5.5, hitting the preview button, without compiling produces a handout format. Of course this may not be what you are looking for but this is what I get:

The preview obtained is:

The above document is created by default under FILE > NEW > Other Documents > Slides Beamer
