Is there a practical way in which a web page can be printed so that the entire content gets printed instead of loosing a portion typically of the right hand side ??

Mark here on RR has an added feature "Print Thread" which is great and automatically converts the page to a "printer friendly" version for printing.....

Alternatively, Yahoo mail has a similar feature where you can click on a "printer friendly" option and then you can print without loosing anything....

So again, is there a way to print html and not loose anything ??

I've done a google search and came up with several options on HOW TO make your web page printer friendly but not on this topic...

Thanx in advance....

That's kind of a tough one. You might take a "screen snap shot" or "print screen" and use an image manipulation tool to make it fit paper size. Really depends on the web content and how it was laid out.

Adobe Acrobat Professional. Make webpage into a PDF and print. I think it would work.

You can highlight the text you want printed, then when you go to print, select the "print selection" field.

Dood, no way!

I can print the entire page width.
Where do you have your page margins set ?

I believe IE7 fixes this long standing issue, otherwise Adobe Acrobat (but you need the full version) or perhaps one of the free pdf writers (?CutePDF?) may do it.

Unfortunately, I'm stuck with IE-6 at work....... I have tried to convert the pages to PDF as you suggested using PrimoPDF and it still cuts off a portion of the text on the web page on the right hand side.....So that option does not work......

I initially asked MR about this and his suggestion was similar to yours, including the PDF route....

It sure is, I've been playing with this on and off this afternoon and can't get it to work.... The snapshot idea would be ok if we were talking about a single page but the document I was after is several pages long....

I tried PrimoPDF and it did not work for reasons stated above.... Maybe Adobe Pro is different but that program is not available to me...

Tried that previously, doesn't work for me....must have something to do with the way these particular pages are formatted....

On the printer ?? Can you ellaborate ?

Printer configuration from the Intrnet Explorer window.
Go to File/Page Setup and set the page margins.
I have mine set at 0.25" for left, right, top and bottom.

Before IE7 came out and fixed the issue, I would always print the page in landscape mode. It usually makes it take up more pages, but at least you can read all of it!

The problem is that most webpages are not formatted to fit the paper in your printer. They are in most cases much wider than what will fit on the paper in your printer.

Maybe its better if you describe exactly what you are trying to do and perhaps we can give you a workaround.

I got some software with my Canon printer calle Easy-WebPrint. It's fantastic and I use it all the time.

Once installed it sits as an option on the top left of the browser toolbar and allows you to preview or print at the touch of a button.

I have one dilemma though - it doesn't work with IE7 - so do I stick with IE6 and keep my beloved Easy-WebPrint or move to IE7 and lose it.

At the moment I'm sticking with IE6.

It my be restricted to Canon printers but I'm not 100% sure. Simple enough to install and see if it works for you - nothing lost if it doesn't.

Cheers,

Nigel

p.s. It appears to be FREE to use.

I have the same problem on other sites, the printer does not print the entire width of some pages.

The RR page is about 720 pixels wide on the screen.
Most printers can print 600 dpi.
At 600 dpi and an 8" page width, that's 4800 pixels.
That would be 4800 / 720 = 6 pixels for greyshading.
6 pixels by 6 pixels = 36 bits or 68 Trillion shades of grey !
You don't need 6 pixels for dithering or grey shading !

What's wrong with this picture ? . . . . . Microsoft !

nheather,

Thanx...... I downloaded and installed the program but I get a message that there are no supported printers installed when I try using it.... Good try, though.....

Wolf,

Yup.... I think you're right..... so far it looks like I may have to give up the thought......

When I print a RR page on my Brother Laser, the image is 7-3/8" wide to the box borders just inside the blue frame.

I just did a "test print" and got the exact same results with no lost data.....

So, the "problem" must be determined on how the pages are coded.....

I have run into this problem on my machine. I set my printer to print at 75% scale in the printer setup menu. This usually gets it all on the page and keeps it at a decent size on the printed page. Sometimes I had to change the % up and down depending on what was on the page but 75% is a good starting place.
