Map Addenda
« on: June 23, 2005, 02:03:20 am »
Someone needs to let Adv. Cycling know that a more
printer friendly version, and even downloadable forms,
of the addendas to route maps needs to be made available. To get copies of the addendas to the 8 Lewis & Clark maps I had to print out both side bars
and the top of the displayed pages to get the addendas.
Which means I will now cut off the excess which is just a waste, and the results are not as functional as they might be.

Use your mouse or keyboard to select the addenda portion of the web page. Then, click on "File", "Print" and "Selection" (in the "Page Range" section of the drop-down). This should print just the addenda information, although it may still be narrow.

If it's too narrow for your needs, copy the selected section, open your word processing program, and paste it in. Save the new document. You can then edit the document. Remove the excess carriage returns. You can do this by first selecting “Tools,” “Options,” “View” Carriage marks. Use your word processing program to search for carriage returns and replace the excess ones with nothing. Make any other changes you want, like font sizes, colors, and print styles, and margins.

To save more paper and ink, go to http://www.fineprint.com. Download a demonstration copy of FinePrint. You can use FinePrint to print 1, 2, 4, or 8 reduced-sized pages on one page. You can go from 16 single pages to one double-sided page! You can get rid of the “www.fineprint.com” message from the bottom by paying for the program. FinePrint allows you to save a lot of money by using less paper and ink.

However, don’t get carried away, make the print large enough that you can read it easily while riding.
