Printing from a website

  PaulOwen 19:24 25 May 2004

I want to print of a website which takes up about a sheet and a half of A4. How do I reduce the size so it fits on to one page? Thanks

Copy and paste into word pad or word, and the editor the type size down to fit - 12 point to 10
should do it

You can set the Print scale in Opera to 70% or so.

It won't copy correctly, there are too many links and it is all different once pasted.

Whats Opera?

You can use print preview to see if the page will fit. If it doesn't, you can change the print options until it does. Since so much depends on the way the site is laid out, it is impossible to tell whether the page can be made to fit at a readable size, but one can usually reduce the page enough to fit the full width.

I can fit this entire page width on A4 portrait. Only the message box doesn't fit on the first page. In internet Explorer, the right side is cut off.

Where do I get Opera?

If you're on dial-up you could try the non-java version to see if you like it. Installation is easy. Choose Google ads. You can run it alongside Internet Explorer, at the same time on the same page if you want. The Opera Forums are a great place to get help on using it: click here

Thanks Pesala, done and dusted.
