I would love, love, love to have a print option on my hubs that formats the hub correctly when it prints out! I often staff tables at environmental-type fairs and would like to share some of my hubs for fair-goers, while suggesting they go online for more.
I agree Watergeek. I often wish I could print my hubs out in their entirety and keep a hard copy.
If you use your browser's built-in print function, our Hubs should come out correctly formatted. For reference, the keyboard shortcut to Print is Ctrl+P a PC and Cmd + P on Macs. I hope this helps!
Yes, printing hubs works beautifully. I printed out three hubs today to give to the owners of the service dog I write for. They formatted just like the hubs are.
On the screen everything's fine, but on the print version the text comes out really small and there are huge gaps in a couple of places where it doesn't match the graphics. (My browser is Safari, in case that makes a difference.)
Also, why is it that the font on Amazon product descriptions (that you enter yourself) is bigger than the font in the hub itself?
I tested printing a hub on Safari yesterday, and was not happy with the print.
Chrome prints out nice.
I printed a recipe Hub using multiple browsers and operating systems and other than a few minor page break differences, which can be explained by differences in the rendering engines in each browser, I did not notice any formatting issues. If you do see formatting issues, please be as specific as you can (share a specific URL for example and explain where you see the issue) and include the browser, browser version, and operating system that you are using.
Here is what I tested.
OS X (10.7.5)
Safari was okey, but Chrome was better.
OS X (Yosemite 10.10.1)
I have an older Mac. Maybe that's the problem. My browser won't upgrade beyond Safari 5.0.6 using OSX (10.5.7). I've noticed it many times before, but the hub I'm currently talking about is here: http://sustainablesue.hubpages.com/hub/ … ainability
There's a huge gap next to the first Amazon capsule.
Unfortunately, if you are using OS X 10.5.7 it looks like you may be stuck with old browsers that are no longer updated.
You may want to see if your computer can be upgraded to a newer version of OS X.
I think 10.7.5 is about the oldest version for which you can find a current browser like Firefox. Even the version of Safari that supports 10.7.5 is not current or maintained and supported by Apple.
Well, I guess that answered that, then. I'll have to accept that even though my computer is perfectly good and runs perfectly too, it's another victim of planned obsolescence. That's ok. I'll copy and reformat whenever I need printouts. Thanks for checking.
Chrome has a nice print set up.
(Videos and comment do not show.)
I would say that if Chrome works well with the printouts, it might be worth to get Chrome just to do the prints. You don't need to switch to Chrome full time if you are happy with Safari, you can just use it when you need to print out a hub.
Other than that, the only thing I can think of is for you to redo all of the layout and everything in a word processor.
Yep. That's what I'm going to have to do. Copy and paste into my word processor and then reformat. Chrome is only made for newer computers with an Intel base.
Oh... I thought Chrome was available for everything. It seems so odd for Google to limit it in such way, when they've gone out of their way to make it light-weight enough to run on a 90's Windows/Unix computer and even on most modern phones, neither of which are Intel based.
Then again, it's Google we're talking about. They're not well known for making logical, user-friendly decisions lately...
Good luck with your prints and sorry that I couldn't be more helpful.

I wonder if a "printer friendly" option might be possible for recipe hubs. I know it shouldn't be on all hubs, because of copyright problems, but sometimes, we want to try a recipe, but to print it out from the full hub often takes like 7 sheets of paper, including as it does all of...

I have been experiencing problems trying to post comments. When I finish writing the comment it doesn't post and the screen returns to the top of the hub. Anyone in my boat?

Hi, just started a new hub. It will not save with the "Done Editing" button and I cannot do any edits on it (ie, I do the edits, click the "done editing" button and it sits in limbo "loading"). The "loading" goes on forever and it appears I cannot update the...

There was one hub that interested me that had instructions, that I wanted to print, but I couldn't find out how to do it. I tried to copy and paste, but it would not do so. Sometimes, especially with a long hub I like to sit with a coffee and read it in hard copy. Perhaps it is...
