We have introduced another new feature "Printable Verion of a thread". This feature lets you print a user friendly version of a topic/thread. You can click on the link " Printable Version", which is located at the lower right portion of the topic screen below the "Email a friend " link or upper right portion of each topic.

This will provide you a nicely formatted version of the thread. Once this page appears you will need to print the page thru your web browser. I.E.

From the Menu Bar on your web browser select:
FILE ==> PRINT ==> PRINT (which will appear in a new pop window).

Enjoy,

-dalaly & kolusu

Dalaly,

Nice option, but if you put a blank line between your posts, like the above one, then it vanishes when you look at printable version.


But, if you put two blank, as I have done now, you will see one blank line.

I guess, for readability, blank lines are needed in printable format too.

Diba.

dalaly,

Instead of text anchors for the links "Email to a Friend" and "Printable version", why don't you have image anchors like or ? Images will catch the users attention more easily than text links.

Premkumar,

Thanks for the suggestion and I will take this into consideration once we launch a new version of the board which will contain many new updates. I have no ETA on the timeing of your requested change but for now I do not want to have to many hyperlink link images on the board.

Best regards,
