PRINTING INSTRUCTIONS PAGES

 

WINDOWS EXPLORER

As of Summer 2008, Internet Explorer version 7 or XP with updates has a printing bug!


If you have updated your Microsoft Internet Explorer, you may have noticed that it automatically shrinks a web page when printing it. It makes most type iddy biddy and certainly throws off the sizing for the crafts and activities here! It also seems to cause the printing to be much lighter. A few people who hoped for this shrinking feature must be happy, but by and large, most people do not like this feature. There does not seem to be an easy fix.

LOTS OF COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS Microsoft glitch:

 

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO PRINT INSTRUCTIONS AND ACTIVITIES AS THEY WERE INTENDED:

You should have no problem printing our pages in Windows Explorer if you use Print preview for printing:


When you see the preview screen, set it at 100% and print from the preview screen by clicking on the printer image.

Be sure your page margins are at .5 (1/2 inch) all around. The animated left side of the page will not be printed - that's what I intended to save your ink!

Be sure you are printing in portrait mode unless otherwise stated in the instructions.

 

 

FIREFOX - MOZILLA FIREFOX

We apologize that Firefox cannot print the complete instructions due to a bug in their programming that does not print tables that span multiple pages.

Here are two altenatives:

.


Put your cursor just to the left of the word Title (Which can be tricky) or in front of the actual title (which is easier) . Hold down the left mouse button and drag across over the instructions and then down the page to highlight all the instructions. Right click your mouse to click COPY. Open Word and PASTE. Print from Word.

It's really very simple in Internet Explorer, so if you are able, we recommend you use IE.

    

Othere known issues:

In Firefox, attempting to highlight and print a selected area does not work either for multiple page tables.

It is also recommended that you turn off the spell checker in Firefox, as with it on, it is likely it will stop printing if it encounters a misspelled word or one it does not recognize.

 

PRINTING ACTIVITIES AND CRAFTS WEB PAGES

 

Activity pages should print well in both Internet Explorer and Firefox, even when multiple craft parts are provided.

Set your margins at .5 (1/2 inch) all around. Most activities and crafts fill this area.
Most web pages will print with the title above the craft or activity and the page name below it.

Be sure you are printing in portrait mode.

In Internet Explorer, you can either:

1.Go to "File" on your menu bar (Usually top left of your screen) and then click "print"
or
2. If your browser is setup to show a printer icon, just click and that and choose "print"

If your printer gives you a smaller or too large (cut off) image, you can set "Scaling" in your print settings to compensate for the size you want. Scaling is most commonly found under "page setup" then "properties".

In Firefox you can go to "File" on your menu bar (Usually top left of your screen) and then click "print".

Margin settings are under "File", page setup then margins and footers.

Scaling is available in this browser under "File", page setup, then format & Options.

 

Both best printed at 1024x768 or 800x600 screen settings as you may otherwise have unusual margin, scaling and modes setup.
