Gentlemen/Ladies,

I知 not sure where to post this question so I知 plumping for this forum, knowing that it will be redirected if it is in the wrong place.

Occasionally, when I open a website, its pages are too wide for my monitor and I have to scroll across to the right to see what is hidden from view. When I go to print the pages, I end up with just threequarters of the width of the script.

I am using an HP LaserJet 1010 printer.

I do not have this problem with all websites. Today, the offender is -

http://www.explorenorth.com/whalers/featur...lecaptains1.htm

Will the pages of this website be partly displayed on the monitors of all of the people who open it , or are my own 壮ettings to blame.

Please, how can I overcome the problem ?

Yours sincerely,

oldsoldier

Hi oldsoldier.

I get the same thing when viewing that page. My screen resolution is set to 1024X768. I found that if I went to View>Text Size and set it to Smallest the page almost fit. Have you used Print Preview in the File menu to see what the page will print like? You can also use Page Setup in the File menu to adjust the margins etc. before printing.

This is caused by the kind of document it was when copied into the page, and the failure to check the formatting (see the "died" at the very right about half-way down? had this---and others--- been moved, the page would have fit).

To get a printable version, copy and paste the contents to a word-processing document and edit those lines that have "run over."

Two methods -

>View/Text Size/Smallest/then print

>Copy and Paste into new Word Document/manually compact script/then print<

can solve the problem.

Thank you,

oldsoldier
