From the Actrix Online Informer June 2012

Printing from the net

by Rob Zorn

Another question we have recently received was about printing just parts of the Online Informer. It may be a digital world, but some people just feel better when they can have something on paper. Printing out just a section of the Actrix Online Informer is easy to do, and there are a number of different ways to do it. What's more, these methods can be used for printing nearly anything on the internet. Having articles and web-pages in print form can be very handy, especially for things like directions or recipes.

In terms of printing an article from the Online Informer, we generally include a link at the end of main articles which allows you to view that particular article on its own. If you ever want to print one of these off, simply click that link, then click File and then Print in your browser. These links are usually only for the larger articles, but if there's something else you want to print off, there are two different ways to do it. Again, these methods can be used for printing just about anything online.

The first option is to use your mouse to select the text you want to print, then click File and then Print. A box with printer properties should appear, and under the heading (or something similar) Page Range, you have the option of ticking Selection. This means your printer will only print the portion you have selected or highlighted.

The second option is to use your mouse to select the text you want to print, and then copy and paste the selected text into another program such as Microsoft Word. You can then print the article as you would any other Microsoft Word document. This option also lets you format the document before you print it.

Happy printing!
