Set out the page for printing

Your computer feeling a lot slower lately? That new program you installed not working? Can't convert a specific file? Looking to buy a new hard drive or dvd writer? Would like some recommendations? Firewalls, latest threats and general P2P security issues are here also.

Set out the page for printing

Post by voetsak » Thu Aug 25, 2016 10:57 pm

I copied a book from the internet but I can't print it because it is so narrow. There are so many pages and I need to reduce the number.

There's a 'ruler' a person can click on and a 'line' appears. Then you can "drag" the line to the right, as far as you want.
Then the words 'follow' and all the writing goes up to where you stop and there would only be half the number of pages to print.
I don't know why, but the ruler won't move the words to where I want it to go.

If anyone knows what I mean, please tell me how to make it work.
Thanks a lot

Is it a Word file? Maybe you can try to copy the text, open a new empty Word document and then choose to paste with "Keep Text only". Or if that seems complicated, select all text and copy the text to Notepad, and then select all text in Notepad and copy to a new empty Word document. If that dont work, can you upload the file so we can see it?

Thank you raffe. Sorry it took me so long but I wasn't told you had replied.
I tried what you said, and ended up doing the Notepad thing. Well, it worked!
My goodness, what a nice surprise for me. Usually I get muddled and have to come back for more help.
Thanks again raffe, I really appreciate your help.
Love
