    Printing stuff from Communities

    This borders on tech support, but maybe not?

    Anyone else like to print useful articles from the Communities site?

    When I print them out, the pictures are all tiny and I cannot see them.

    I think it would be nice if the printer view would "enlarge" them, but perhaps it depends on how the original article was submitted?

    I know what you mean... I usually end up copying everything into Word,
    then overlaying the small pictures with the larger ones (by clicking on
    the original one). Takes a bit of time, but some articles are worth it...

    All "pictures" inside an article exist as a graphic on their own but are
    generally reduced in size to fit the article. Perhaps one solution for
    you would be to click on the PRINT icon and print the article, then while
    still there click on the graphics you want enlarged and print them
    separately and attach them to the article.

    How about PDF format for downloading with the big pictures in them?
