Sometimes an Internet search lands a multi-page file of mixed text and graophics. (A typical example: Instructions using a series of illustrations.) Now it may be that you don't want the whole
file, since it may include items you're not interested in, or perhaps comments from dozens of users, etc. It is possible to use the mouse to highlight part of the file, but how to print it? WordPerfect
would allow you to paste the whole thing in, but some Linux word processors only show an outline of the illustration of a Window box; Textmaker just ignores the illustrations altogether.. Have tried
GIMP, but it says there is no image. Have tried a batch of graphics programs, but most do not let you paste in something--some only work with an existing image file. Doing this with KSnapshot, a
page at a time is a real pita, but the only answer I have found. As a specific instance: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/19249/how-to-assign-a-static-ip-address-in-xp-vista-or-windows-7/
I want to print out the Win 7 and XP (only) portions of this instruction, with the graphics. It's not always a question of saving paper and inks, but saving time also, since color printing takes time.
Why don't I do this in Windows with WordPerfect? I'm having a network printer problem at the moment! (Which leads me to the static IP situation!)
Thanx for any ideas here. --doug
