Could we get a PRINT button?

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Could we get a PRINT button?

Postby Needled » Wed Sep 30, 2009 10:14 am

Dear NHE and Aaron, With so much going on in so many forums, I just don't have enough time at the computer to read it all. And I need to see things in print, plus then I can bring them along with me and read. I've tried copying and pasting into Word docs, but that just doesn't work very well. Is there any way you could add a print feature to the site? It would be great. Or would this require some kind of system upgrade? Would it cost $$? Just thought I'd ask.
Anyway, thanks for all the work and time you both devote to TIMS. We obviously wouldn't be here without you!

I changed my "Theme" to "Traditional", and it is a LOT more print friendly using the browsers built-in print functionality.

Thanks, Cure, I'll definitely try that!

I tried it and it works much better. Now I just have to figure out where everything is. Thank you!

Hi Needled,
Thanks for the suggestion. I have forwarded it to Arron. It may indeed be feasible for ThisIsMS but it may take a little while to implement and debug.

Another thing you could try is , if you have IE (I am sure other browsers would have similar also), go to "Edit" and click on "Select All", then go to "Edit" and select "Copy", and then start up Notepad, and select "Paste", then copy it from notepad, and paste it into Word (or Write) for any final formatting; or print it directly from Notepad.

Pasting and copying from Notepad will remove all formatting and images.

NHE, That would be so cool. Thanks for looking into it! And Cure, another good suggestion, thanks. I'll try that out too. How do you figure out all this stuff?? I'm pretty good with Word, but I never would have thought of all that. I do have to say, though, a single "print" button would be a lot easier. :lol:

most people who know me add a three letter word to the end of that sentence.
