This message is for Steve;

Since I came upon your web site, I have been nowhere else. First for the digicam reviews and then I discovered the forums.

I have attempted to print some of your "conclusions" but to no avail. I really would like to have them to glean over in my easy chair.

Is there any way to print them?and if not kindly explain to this dumb newbie why not!

Thanks Steve, don't know how you do it, but keep it up! What a great site!!

What happens when you try to print them using your browser's "File, Print" menu choice?

Your browser should have a "File, Print Preview" choice, too (so you can see how it will look before you try to send it to the printer)?

Sometimes you have to go into "File, Page Setup" and change the orientation if it's not set correctly.

What are you getting when you print (garbage, landscape versus portrait, cut off borders...)?

What browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.?), Operating System (Windows98,ME, XP, etc.?)and printer are you using?

Hi Jim; well it's been sometime since I attempted to print a review. It seems to me if I can remember rightly it just wouldn't print the whole page. i.e. it quit halfway down the page, so I quit trying to print them.

But I think what you are telling me by your ?'s is that the reviews can be printed and I'll try some of the things you mention.

Thanks for the response!

Hi again Jim; well I just attempted to print Steve's conclusions for the S2 IS. To answer your questions; Print Preview OK, Page Setup - Portrait, Browser - IE6, Windows XP, Printer - Epson Stylus Colour 880.

Now to be fair, in the interests of saving paper I only wanted to print one page at a time, so that Icould have it printed on both sides of the paper. Pressed print and it ran one piece of paper through and stopped.

Hi again Jim: It prints if I just let it print one page at a time.

Thanks for your help. Sorry to be a bother for such a simple operation.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean by one page at a time. If you use the File, Print Preview menu choice, see if you've got all of the pages included (you'll see how many pages there are in the preview, and can change to thesubsequent pages with an arrow key at the top).

If you seemultiple pages there, then it should print all of them when you send it to the printer (unless you are telling the printer properties to only print 1 page (versus selecting All)

Print Preview is a good way to tell if your printer settings are correct, without wasting any paper.

Well, let me see if I can clarify what I do.

Ctrl P brings up the printer with a Print Range box -- All, Selection, Current Page, and Pages.

I have hi-lited the pages I want and select "Pages" then specify the range of pages. To print the 1st page only becomes Print Range 1-1, when that is printed I place that printed paper back in the printer face side down and specify Print Range pages 2-3.

Now pages 1 & 2 are back to back printed both sides, and page 3 comes out printed on one side only. Reloadpage 3 face side down and specify Print Range 4-5, and pages 3 & 4 come out printed on both sides, and so on until all pages are printed and are on double sided paper.

Am I going about this in a complicated way or what? to print on both sides of the paper.

What happens if you just tell it to print everything (all pages)?

It could just be something odd about trying to print on both sides of a page that you'll need to figure out by changing settings (trial and error) I never do that with any printers I've owned.
