No matter how small I make the page margins, the RH edge of the text gets cropped. This happens in IE and Firefox.

I see this sometimes with other web pages - why is this and
does anyone have any 'workarounds', please?

Would printing to a PDF then scaling the page to fit work?

Usually gets me out of a similar situation, and there are plenty of free PDF generators.

Is that his "Technical Rview"?

I tried printing the first two pages from IE7 and they came out fine. Are you using IE7? If so using the print icon should be OK as the margin issue was something MS fixed in IE7.

I think he means the settings document

I could get a decent print by using Safari web browser and printing to either direct to paper or to a PDF document and then printing the PDF document.

I could not get a decent print or PDF document when printing from Firefox that showed the full line length.

Ah yes that doc would make sense, just tried that one as well and no issues printing the first two pages using IE7. Is it all pages or later ones that are causing an issue?

I've now installed the 'Loop PDF' plugin for Firefox, which works OK. Converting to PDF is a round-about way to print web pages. I don't know why printing from Firefox doesn't print 'as displayed' - it seems an irritating bug to me.

Thanks for the suggestions.

This happens to me on a lot of web pages and I normally just select landscape print to avoid the problem. Unfortunately it does use more paper

I've used that method myself. The version of Internet Ex that I'm using now scales pages down to fit, unfortunately sometimes it scales them down too far and the text ends up really small.

Morning Folks, I've not actually printed it, but I've done a print preview in Opera, which shows it would be fine for printing. I use Opera for almost all my printing of web pages as it seems to do the job better than anything else.
It's well worth a try as a general purpose browser if you've not had a play with it yet.

I printed it out ... can't remember if I just cut/pasted into Word or made it into a PDF and printed (because I have both a Word and PDF of it) ... and it printed just fine.

It's like my official manual now for this camera.

Put all the articles about the E-3 together with a cover and an index. Did it with OS/2-eCS and FireFox 3.0. Now I have a pdf, there is only one but....its 44Mb+ and 118 pages.
