Printing Full Web Pages in Portrait

Hi,


On every printer I have, HP LaserJet, Xerox inkjet, Epson CX5200, and Canon
i560, there are some web pages I have to print in landscape in order to get
the whole page. I've looked and looked for settings that will fit the page
to portrait, but no joy.

I was up at my dad's last weekend.

His HP PSC 2110 All-In-One inkjet prints any web page, in portrait, without
cutting off the right hand side.


Am I missing something very basic?

Thanks,
Bruce

I think thats just a coincidence that was printing pages that did not
get cut off.. The coincidence being that the pages that were printed
had collapsable content that would fit into the margins of the print
area size.

For hard content pages that are larger than your print area, such as
pictures or absolute sized tables within the page body, your printer
drivers should accomodate for that...

Your canon drivers for example, should offer the ability to "fit to
page" or scale it manually.. It is located under the "page setup" tab
in your drivers.
