printing from computer question

Recommended Posts

Hi, I want to know if anyone has any tips for printing straight from a computer screen. I need to print data from a computer screen before it is turned into a "report". And when I print, the right edge keeps getting cut off. I am doing this for another agent, and was asked to print it from the screen (ie pushing "control P" or just hitting the print icon, so it is not really formatted for printing), so I don't know if there is a report that I can run with the same information. I'm not sure which info he actually needs, so I don't want to submit things that are chopped up, KWIM?

 

I have tried portait, landscape and changing the size in printing preferences, but it is still missing a big chunk of info.

 

Thanks!

Meredith

Hi! I am working on a project for a client and was asked to do some online research. The sample the client provided me was formatted as if he just pushed "control P", so it is not really a pretty copy. But when I print from my own computer, it cuts off a huge chunk from the right margin-like 2 inches. Do you have any tips to make it print correctly from the screen? I've tried portait and landscape and changing the paper size and the total print size (within print preferences) and it is still messed up.

 

Any help would be appreciated!

Thank you!

After you press the Print Screen button on your keyboard (it is captured to the clipboard as an image), open a Word document and paste it in there, so that you have control over the margins. Hope this helps...

Thanks Brandi,

I'll try the links. I though of copying and pasting into word, but it looks funny, but at least all of the info is there.

Thnx!

I would suggest the following in order to get the printing right:

 

1. Take a screengrab by pressing [shift] [PrtSc] keys together. Now you have a copy of the screen on your Windows clipboard.

 

2. Startup your favorite image editor (Paint, Imaging, Irfanview, Photoshop, whatever) and load the clipboard image by going to 'Edit', 'Paste' (or just press [Ctrl] [V]). Now your image is in your editor.

 

3. Adjust the Page Setup from the File menu and then print the image. The image editor will give you more control over how you print the image compared to just relying on Windows to do it using [Ctrl] [P].

 

Hope this helps.
