Tips for Printing Catalog Pages
We have designed the
Catalog so that each page fits horizontally
when printed on regular 8.5" wide paper. Below are some helpful
tips to control other aspects of your printed output.
Printing only a portion of a Web page: 1)
One option is to copy the critical text that you want to print, and then
paste it into another program, like Word or Notepad, and print from that
program. 2) Most
browsers give you the option to specify a range of page numbers for
printing. To do this, select FILE, PRINT and enter your desired page
range in the Print Dialog Box. Some versions of Netscape
offer a convenient FILE, PRINT PREVIEW so that you can scroll down and
note which page numbers you want to print before you decide on the page
Adding helpful information to printed output: Most
Web browsers give you the option to add helpful header and footer
information to your printed output, such as: the document title,
location (URL), date printed, page numbers, etc. Simply choose FILE, PAGE
SETUP, make your choices, and Click OK. This information can come in
very handy, especially when you refer back to these pages after a period of
Printing linked pages: Newer versions of the Internet
Explorer browser allow you to print a Web page as well as all the
pages that are linked from it. Choose FILE, PRINT and check the box that says
"print all linked documents". Careful
choosing this option! Be sure to browse through all the
linked pages beforehand, or you may end up printing way more pages than you
