Printing from a Web page

by chrisyp / May 17, 2005 10:42 PM PDT

When I print from a web page I loose all the right hand side, why. How do I correct this. I'm using ME and my printer is an Epsom C46. Is there a way to print a specific part only of the web page.

Try looking at the print preview or page setup

before printing. You will find these by going to file then choose either one. You can change the margins or % of size to be printed. Sometimes reducing the % size will allow the whole page to print. Your can also change the postion to landscape and see if that works.

May cut off on the right side.

You can copy/paste the web content to a word processor, try landscape, play with margins and try another web browser. But a surprise to many is that printing is not in the "SPEC" over at

Point? -> It's not broken.

As to printing only a specific portion, the copy/paste to the word processor works for me and sometimes you can highlight the section, then click File, Print and an option is to print 'Selection.'
