If I now print a report from a newspaper the print is so small I cannot read it. How do I change the print to make my copy readable please? rnsa

Before printing it, try moving mouse wheel forward or backward to increase print size. You might need to hold down the Ctrl key while scrolling the mouse wheel.

If you go to File, Print Preview, you can change the print size.

'Shrink to Fit' is usually a good one to go for

Hope this helps you

Do a right click in the window you wish to print. Select print preview. select the size you wish to use, the click the print icon in the preview window (if you use any other print icon in any other window the size will revert to "fit to size" and drive you up the wall.

Well, I don't know about the OP - rnsa, but I can't understand the instructions in the posts. They seem to be nonsense. None of them work, some are not possible to do let alone get the desired result.

rnsa, is this:

1 from a paper newspaper you have scanned in and saved as a picture,

2 from a paper newspaper you are trying to copy and enlarge directly from your printer scanner

3 a newspaper report from a webpage, (you are trying to print from a webpage)

If it is number 3, from a webpage, then highlight the Text you want on the webpage and rightclick and copy and paste into Notepad (to remove formatting). Select the text and change the font size.

or if you have Office Word choose 'Paste Special' -'Unformatted text' and change the font size.

From their FAQ's "To print or download a newspaper page image, click the 'Print' or 'Download' button shown at the top of the viewer window. Please note that the image will be draft quality."

Do as Woolwell says and download the image (you will now have a picture of the newspaper page) you won't be able to select text.

What picture editing software do you have on your pc? You will have to select the part of the picture that contains the report you want and copy that and make a new image of just that part and save it with a file name.

Then you can print the new picture using print settings to enlarge it to fit on an A4 page.

OR You may find it easier to resize in Word if you have MS Office, as then you can insert the new picture and then drag diagonally by grabbing one corner (to keep proportions)
