Print in "read view"

by armresl / November 26, 2004 12:33 AM PST

Hi,

I enjoy reading in the "reading layout" view and can't seem to print like that. Is there a way to pring from the reading layout view?

Thanks.

What application could this apply to?

With just what's in your post, I can only write that many Microsoft Office applications have limited as-supplied printing methods.

You may want to post a followup with what application and versions as well as exactly how you print now.

Ok, thanks

Microsoft Office 2003 and I am using Word.

I print now using the print key but am now printing up a transcript and need to print in the reading view so it appears side by side.

Word 2003 doesn't have a View Reading item.

Sorry to pressure you on this, but when I pull up the View on Word 2003, I don't see a "Reading" view.

As such I can't follow what your view is.

Word 2003 does have a View Reading item!

Oops. I had to try another machine. Looks like someone had modified that one to look like Office 2000.

Ok, I see that from http://www.microsoft.com/office/word/prodinfo/overview.mspx that it's just a two-up page view.

Some printers allow 2-up printing. Since Word doesn't offer such, you'll have to see if your printer offers it.

Another end-run about the 2-up if your printer doesn't do such is to produce a PDF and the Adobe software will allow 2-up printing.

Many solutions, but none will be a "click-here" one.

I have e doc pro which converts to pdf and also have acrobat. How would I make pages side by side in either of those?

Thank you for your responses.

I wouldn't.

Here's why. I just use the printing options for 2-up and viola, I have side by side printouts.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
