Re: [agile-usability] Re: Print Page
- I totally agree there should be a specialised print format - I mentioned this in my previous post. The browser print function uses the same print format/stylesheet as the print link would. The only difference is whether you have the explicit link or not.
if there isn't an explicit link, would users not print or would they fall back to the browser print anyway?
Actually I've just realised this is completely off topic for this list. Sorry :)
Dan.2008/8/8 Vijay Hanumolu <vijju2k@...>I agree with you Scott. Its very frustrating, especially if the users of your site need to print a lot. Also, in some instance users prefer to read it online if we provide the PDF download format.
Another way to look at it, providing explicit print-format can help reduce multiple prints thus avoiding wastage - Go Green :).

I generally prefer an explicit print-format option, because otherwise I have to use Print Preview to figure out whether it's got a print stylesheet or just doesn't support printing.
I end up printing a lot of stuff to read off-line and I end up using Aardvark a lot to isolate the content, because so sites either don't have a print format or screw it up...
