Printout or Print Preview right side of contents truncated

Eric Lim

Hi, just wondering anybody has problem when doing a print preview of a
webpage, or actual printout, right-side of it does not show or get printed
out. Have tried restarting Windows, re-mapped printerq but problem persists.
Have also tried setting page margin, adjusting printer settings - scale to
fit, A4 paper size, all the same.

Thoughts?

Sometimes you can print the desired material by:

Printing in landscape orientation.

Copying the desired material to the Windows clipboard and then paste it
to another application like Wordpad, OpenOffice Write or Word. Sometimes
a regular paste works, but you might have to "paste special" or paste
text to Notepad to eliminate things like colors or odd characters. Copy
and paste has the added benefit of allowing you not print extraneous
material like menus and advertisements.

If you can update to IE7 you might be able to use the "Shrink to Fit"
function on its print preview.

You could even try holding the CTRL key while rolling the wheel on your
mouse (unless you are using an old style wheelless mouse) to reduce the
text size.

Try this:
Highlight portion you want to print.
Click on Print Preview. (should show tab saying "As laid out on screen")
Change that tab (down arrow next to it) to "As selected on screen"
Then print.
That should work onless what rob replied is fact.
Also see if you can e-mail it to yourself

Hi Eric, I have trouble printing websites correctly too! What I have
discovered that helped me is that I use MS Word and notepad and or wordpad to
print. When you are on a website assuming you have MS Word go to tools,
internet options, programs. Where it says HTML Editor click and select Word.
Click apply and OK. Now that you have selected Word as your default HTML
editor click File and Edit with Microsoft Word. Give it a little time and
Word will pop up with the website. hopefully displaying everything. Now at
the bottom you have file name and file type. Click save as and click Word
Document, by default it should say webpage as the file type. Now try to print
that way and let me know what happens. You can also cut and paste into
wordpad or notepad or Word.
best Regards,
Kaja

I have the same problem - has always done this on my home printer using Firefox
At work - using IE-6 it worked find until recently when it started doing the same thing.
tried the print preview, no show tab saying "As laid out on screen"
already have word as editor but when I click file - edit is greyed out

what would have changed to make the print change?
