View Full Version : can you print just one post at a time?
Hi I'm new to the boards and am finding them very helpful. I love to cook and love following new receipes. I would like to print some of the receipes posted and not write them all down. Is there a way to do this without printing the entire page of replies to that receipe?

I'm not sure if this can be done or not, but it is a question that I had pondered at one point with the old boards, and did attempt to achieve to no avail. What I have relized though is that having the additional feedback is very useful when I'm thinking about making something. I have ended up printing out the feedback and tucking it into my CL mags so I know what to expect, generally. They've been great! Hopefully someone will be able to let us know if we can print just the one post/reply though. I'm sure that will be useful to many :-)

You can always copy and paste it to a Word Processor - then print it out!

There are two ways that I know of:
1. You can highlight all the text you wish to print, then right click, select print, and print selection. This works in Windows NT and I think it also works in Windows 95...give it a try.
2. You can highlight all the text you wish to print, then right click, select copy, then paste the text into a word document or on your notepad, then print.
Hope this is helpful.

Short question - long answer. At this time, I'm not aware of a function that allows you to print just one post at a time. However, there are some ways around that which I'll detail here for both the PC and Macintosh platforms.
For PC: See Deanna's post above. (I was just about to type the same answer, when I saw her post)
For Macintosh (OS 7 and higher): You can also select, copy and paste into Simpletext, Word or Wordperfect for Mac, and then print. If you would prefer to keep the look of the page (with graphics, color, etc.) you can take a "photograph" or screen shot of the page.
First, make sure the content you want to print appears in your browser window (some monitors/resolutions may be too small for this technique) and then simultaneously press Command (open apple key) - Shift - 4
It will give you a crosshair cursor. Drag your cursor around the content you want to print. If your sound is on, you'll hear the sound of a camera shutter. It takes a picture of your screen and puts it on your hard drive - named "Picture 1" and then "Picture 2", etc. Just double click on the file icon and print as usual.
We'll be adding these answers to the FAQ within the next couple of weeks. Thanks for the question.

Hi Dora. The way I do it I highlight the recipe then click right side mouse hit copy then go to mail (new mail) type my own email and paste then I am emailing the recipe & I will review it later.
Thank you all, that answered my question exactly. I'm looking forward to reading all the great posts!
