Can someone tell me how to print out my old essays on DU?

I have tried shading the whole essay and then trying print but that doesn't work. I tried to call my wonderful computer guy but he must have left town b/c no answer on his phone and his email doesn't work.

Please help. It's probably something stupid that I forgot but that's me nowadays...

1. What do you mean 'essays?' Where are they?

2. Copy them from DU to a blank email and send to yourself. Then print.

They might go into your junk file instead of inbox, so check there.

3. Are you trying to print the posts to paper...

..or just save a copy to your computer?

If you press ctrl-p while on the page, that will bring up the print dialog box.

If you want to save them to your computer, I find that 'printing' a document to 'pdf' (which just translates/saves the page data to pdf format) works well. That can be selected in the print dialog under 'destination'.

7. Hey CTYankee

If you can provide me with link to the posts that contain your essays, I'll whip them into shape and email the documents to you - I assume you have a printer.

Send me a PM.
