Printing out a topic and replies

Postby Needled » Wed Feb 18, 2009 5:45 pm

Is there an easy way to print out all the posts to a topic in a one, separate Word document? I've tried copying and pasting, but that doesn't work well for longer threads. There are some posts that I’d like to read in more detail and they’re pretty long (like the CCVI thread), and it would be so much easier to print it out and take it with me to read instead of sitting at the computer. Thanks very much!

Not that I'm aware of. You could load each page of a topic and then choose Print Preview in your browser to modify the printout. However, this still leaves you with having to load each page which would consist of about 15 posts for each page (screen pages not printed pages).

Thanks, N. I’ll just take my time at go at it the long way. After all the time and effort so many people have put into the CCVI thread, it’s the least I can do to read it carefully. It’s going to be a long one, though -- the first two pages of the post copy into 16 pages in Word, with a smaller font and extra returns deleted. Lucky for me, we have a duplex, high- speed printer at work!
