Printing problem

Posted by angelaid (My Page) on

I'm frustrated to tears here ... right side of the pages are getting cut of when printing internet pages. It happens in Firefox and Explorer. Even when I change to Landscape. I tried converting the page to .pdf and it still cuts off the right side of the page. Have tried removing the margins.
I have to print out Medicare claims histories for clients and the two columns on the right side of the page (what I need) is cut off. HELP? I must have 50 sheets of paper in the trash can from trying different things. ARGH!

RE: Printing problem

Have you tried to copy the text from the web page and paste it into a Word document? In any case, I think you should be using the Print Preview to see what its going to look like before you actually try to print it...rather than wasting ink & paper.

RE: Printing problem

I used print preview and it looked fine (in landscape) but still didn't print the last two columns. Tried copying to Word, but it came out all wonky with goofy symbols, columns didn't line up, etc..

RE: Printing problem 2

Try selecting Paste Special and paste it as unformatted text. Maybe you'll be able to line up your columns manually.

RE: Printing problem

You might try this method:

Open the Internet page you want to print. Select

File \ Page Setup \ put a tick in Enable shrink-to-fit
