I just LOVE that these wonderful projects are available here! Is there an easy way to print them out for reference - like a "printer friendly" version?

thanks :)

Hi Tia, :wave:
You could go Edit/Select All ...then Save As...each page of a thread will require a number after page 1.
Or you could go Edit/Select All/Print Preview and select which pages of the thread page you require...note: each page of a thread can run to 10 sometimes more pages on a print out, so you need to do the Preview and be selective.
Hope this helps you...This is a wonderful site isn't it... :D

Scroll down to the bottom of the page. Under the last reply window you will see a button that says: Show a printable version.

That should make it easier for you to print out a project that you like, or any other thread that you find interesting such as WIPs on certain topics.

Welcome to the Watercolor Forum.

Laurie,

I don't know how to make a copy of the page to show you or I would do it that way.

However, scroll down to the last reply window, then continue scrolling down and you will see a box with these headings:

THREAD TOOLS
printer icon: Show Printable Version
email icon: Email this Page
check icon: Unsubscribe from this Thread


Just click on the link labeled "Show Printable Version" and that should be all you need to do.

I just tried it and it worked for me. I do use an iMac running 9.2 OS system which usually causes problems here. Hope it works for you too if you are running Windows.

:confused: OK, wrong post, wrong forum, wrong question! LOL!!! Last night I found myself in Rods's thread Helpful Links, Posts and Articles on Watercolors that lists all these wonderfulf classes, books, tips, etc. I found the Lessons and Demos and somehow related that to the Project Forum. So what I was actually trying to find a printer friendly page for were the lessons - such as: http://www.wetcanvas.com/ArtSchool/Watercolors/RodWebb/Clouds/page5.html and others. I know I can do a copy and paste but did not how it would come out...I guess I will just try :D

That's another one of those anomolies with this system. I have that option at the bottom of my screen (below the replies) as I told Laurie. When I click on the word "Tools" at the top of my screen, nothing happens.

That is because this system doesn't like Macs, I think. :mad: :evil: :wink2:

I was looking for a quick way to print out Rod Love's lessons but couldn't find a printer version. I see the tools for printing on a thread, but not on the lessons.

I did print them out page by page which is a pain, but works. Also uses a lot of ink because of the pictures.

I would be nice if you could download a whole project at once. Sigh always wanting something right ...LOL

cheers

You could save the thread in your Favourites (Internet Explorer) using the "Make available offlne" option.
