Post Printing puzzles
Can anyone advise me about the following:

When I print a puzzle, sometimes the printer drags a second page. What are the convenient definitions in 8x8, 9x9, 10x10 and 12x12 to obtain the larger image in only one page?

You are using the print function, right? (i.e. you click the print icon)

Because even for the 12x12 I have plenty of space left on the page.

Patrick, isn't it possible to print the 15x15 puzzle from the book in one sole page? And eventual future puzzles?

I did, didn't I?
It's in the book on a single page, and on four "cut & glue" pages.

I don't have a printer at home, so I have to use the public library printer, which offers only the internet explorer browser. To get the large-sized puzzle printouts for 9x9 and 10x10, I specify the print page 2 option. This way you get the whole puzzle on one page, but without the header.

To get a large-size 12x12, I get the puzzle to have medium-sized cells on the website. Then I copy the puzzle from website to a word document, specifying narrow margins.

I hope this makes sense and is useful to you.

hi cecileb,

thanks for the pointers. I'll take a look at how the puzzles are printed from IE,
both to A4 and Letter sized paper (Letter sized paper being common in the US
(and Mexico, Canada?), A4 in the rest of the world), and see if I can make it so
the puzzles print to one page without having to fiddle with anything (which is
what's supposed to happen..)

I did some checks and made some changes, the puzzles should now
all print to 1 page (IE/Firefox/etc., A4/Letter/etc.)
