Print an Article or Paragraph

Articles on many blogs cannot be printed. Articles on this blog can be. You can print the entire series that appears on the home page just by giving the "print all" command; but that would print ten or eleven pages. You can print just the latest posting by estimating its length and specifying, say, pages 1-2, or 1-3, in "page range."   You can print, selectively, any one or more of the earlier posted articles, too.    

To estimate the number of pages in an article, or on what pages an article falls, do a “print preview” and select “1 Page View,” or “3 Page View,” or 6 or 12 Page View. The page sequence is shown, at least on my program, horizontally across the page, 1 to 3 in the first row, 4 to 6 in the second row, etc. Looking closely at those you can see where an article begins and ends. Then close Print Preview, go back to the Print command and, in “page range” type in 1-3 or 3-6, or whatever, and print just those pages.

You can also print anything on the blog by dragging the cursor over the desired paragraphs or pages, selecting the Print command, and specifying “selection” rather than “all” or “pages.” Choosing “selection” will print only the highlighted portion.

Or you can select with the cursor, do a “copy” command, and then paste the material into a word file or an email.

Remember, there are three sets of articles on the blog. The first series is on the home page. If you scroll down to the end of the last article you will see hypertext that says, “older posts.” Click on that and you find another series. At the end of that there’s another hypertext, “older posts.” Click on that and there’s a third series of articles. The same print or copy options can be applied to all or any of the three series.
