What are the possibilities of implementing a "print" version of threads? For example, I'm reading the blues/jazz thread in the KZIM folder and I want to print it out so that my wife will have a better idea what to get for me. If I print in portrait the last few words of each line get cut off. If I print in landscape format it takes more pages than I want.

It would be really nice if I could click a button and get the entire thread (even if it spans multiple pages when I view it normally...) to print in a portrait format without losing a couple of words on every line.

Kudos if you can and will. Thanks anyways if you can't or won't.

I can't remember if we've already coded something very similar to this or not. If not, it shouldn't be too hard to do. It might take a day or two though.

There is a text format somewhere. I'll have to dig it up. It was mostly working but then I gave up on it and never worked on it again.

In the meantime, you could just copy-and-paste the text into a program like Word, reformat it, and print.

Or in the meantime in page setup when you go to print you could shrink the output just slightly (if it's just the last couple of words getting chopped).

I am very upset that the Dr Dirt birthday thread didn't make it. And where is "my Big Black Penis"? (ok, that doesn't sound right...)
