Printing RAT posts
#1
I want to print off some RAT posts to read at my leisure but, whatever I do, there is always something cut off on the right-hand side. Does anyone know a way around this problem?

Internet Explorer but it's the same with Firefox.

Probably dependent upon operating system (and with Windoze which version & which printer drivers!), but both Apple and Linux use CUPS and I have no difficulty printing RAT under Linux. Have you tried printing/saving to PDF and then printing from that (see attached)?

if you go to File /Send /page by email and you send yourself an email you will see also a correct html form without the frames on it, pdf will not help you probably

Probably? That seems a bit strong when the whole problem is that the html rendering of the page is not printing in the first place (so emailing an html version won't necessarily help). :-)

Thank you both for your suggestions.

I'm not sure that my elderly computer knows how to do that. I can't see any way of doing it.

That does work but, of course, I get the whole page, so I can get a lot of extraneous stuff that I do not want. I can't see a way of getting just the posts I am interested in.

One solution that I have discovered is to select the posts I want, copy them and then paste them into a Word document. That seems to work.

Easily done with an application like CutePDF or Bullzip. They work just like a printer driver, but you end up with a PDF file which you can then print onto a thin sliver of dead tree with Acrobat Reader. You can then of course make PDFs from anything, should you feel the urge.
