Hi,

I've noticed some web pages won't fully print out ie you can read all the text on the screen but when printing you lose 10 to 15mm of text on the right hand side. Any ideas on how to overcome this???

Thanks

Page setup problem by the sound of it.

When you go to PRINT check the settings are A4 and do a print preview if possible.

Which browser and printer?

Is the page in a Frame?

I'm assuming you're using Internet Explorer,
Go to File->Page Setup,
Down the bottom of the box are some settings for Left and Right Margins, have a play with them. They'll solve your problem, just can't remember if a bigger or smaller margin is what you need.
After adjusting do a print preview, rather than wasting paper.

Hope that helps,
Geoff.

The easiest solution is to print the document in "Landscape" rather than the default "Portrait".

Just change the printer settings priot to printing and you'll get it every time.

Anything I want to keep I save as an Adobe PDF file. Then I have a soft copy too and it prints fine.

Thanks all will try the suggestions. I usually copy and put into a word document but some pages won't let you copy them.

Thanks again.

Is that because some sites have the right click disabled on the mouse?...if so my daughter told me to press Ctrl+C (for copy) and then go and paste to word as normal. Otherwise the margin adjustment that was previously mentioned works, in File, page set up, set them smaller, and save it as the default setting.

Hi Austravel,

If you are trying to print pages from EO (I assume you are, seeing you have brought it up here), there is a printer icon at the bottom right corner of every page. Click on that and EO will reformat the page for printing.

Doesn’t the fact that EO have written...
"Copyright © 1999 - 2005, I.T. Beyond Pty Ltd. All rights reserved."
mean you can't print the page or even cut and paste it like I just did to write this response.

And besides, give the sponsors their monies worth by revisiting the site to re-read what you need.

You never know when you'll be tempted to buy a TF-08G-12
