I'm wondering if there is a way to export notes pages only. Back in 
the world of powerpoint I could export a presentation as Notes

Which version of PowerPoint? I do not find this option in PP MSO 2002
(only other version I have is PP MSO 95). I ony find:
 Print what:
  Notes Pages
  Outline View
(all of which are also avaliable with LO 3.3.4 and LO 3.4.3.)

I also don't find any option to 'export notes pages only'. But mine are
pretty old versions, so perhaps MicroSoft added this feature later on?
The only thing I found was a macro to do this[1], or the suggestion to
sent the presentation to Word[2].

The best I managed since switching to Libre is to export the notes 
pages after the presentation itself. So the recipient gets two 
copies of the presentation. Once without notes and once with them. I 
would prefer just to get the presentation with notes pages. Is there 
anyway to achieve this?

This document illustrates the problem 

I don't see that there is any facility to Export the notes alone to 
PDF.  You can *print* just the notes, of course: there is a "Print 
content" section in the Print dialogue, and one option is Notes.  

Brian, I think you are checking with OOo. LO (in linux & Windows) has:

File|Print|Print: Document

OOo has:
File|Print|Print content: Content

Both have: Slides, Handouts, Notes, Outline. If you select notes then
you get both a small version of the slide with the notes printed
underneath. This is the same as those in 08_-_Sprint_Completition.pdf.
And exactly the same in my version of MSO PowerPoint 2002.

Or am I missing something/missunderstanding?

you need a PDF file instead of printed pages, one workaround would be 
to obtain a virtual PDF printer for your system and then to use the 
Print functionality to create such files.  Free versions of such 
virtual PDF printer software are available.  Another option would be 
to obtain PDF editing software (again available in free versions) and 
to use this to strip out from the PDF file exported from Impress just 
the pages you wanted.

I think that the best option at this point. But it would certainly be a
nice feature to be able to export just the notes pages etc., directly
from 'File|Export as PDF' when _only_ the 'Export notes pages' is ticked.

However I'm still confused regarding the "The reader would get the
powerpoint slide and all the notes behind it" part, as I've only known
PP to print the notes _under_ the slide.

I trust this helps.
