How di printed an aticle off the internet in .pdf? I'm told that because I'm not printing .pdf is the reason the ends of sentences are chopped off.


When I print articles from a website, the ends of sentences are "chopped off". I'm told that this is because I have not done a page set-up where I click on "always use .pdf when printing". This option does not appear when I want to print using Mozilla FireFox..

Some websites are designed to have an adjustable width, and others are designed to have a fixed width. If the fixed width is too wide to print, the best option is "Shrink to fit". This is available in the Page Setup dialog and also on the toolbar in Print Preview.

  • orange Firefox button > Print > Print Setup
    orange Firefox button > Print > Print Preview (Scale button)
  • classic File menu > Print Setup
    classic File menu > Print Preview (Scale button)

(On Mac, the scale setting is integrated into the Print dialog.)
