    Dont forget to use the 'snap tool' when printing the Wrights coupon.. otherwise you'll waste alot of ink..

    Instructions for the 'snap tool' in Adobe Reader are below, copied from my old post

    Save and open the pdf, move the slider down so the coupon is in the center of your screen. If its a full A4 size page and you cant get the coupon centred, zoom out by using the + and - buttons on your tool bar

    Hit the tools button...then 'select and zoom' and then 'snapshot tool'

    Now with your mouse hold the left button down and drag out a square or rectange over the coupon, you'll see a blue box appear as you drag. Once done let go of the left mouse button and you get a message stating the selected area has been copied. Hit print and the print preview screen will show just the coupon ready to be printed. To the left of that theres a drop down box 'Page Scaling' select 'shrink to printable area' your coupon should now be in the centre of the page. Hit print job done... HTH ;)

    Thanks so much for this I have wasted a lot of ink printing out a whole page so now will be able to print more economically :D
    Maybe this too should go on the first page of the next thread???

    ok, with my best attempt at a stern look over imaginary glasses, I just want to tell you lot off and probably put you all in detention after class :p

    The pictures you post are quite often (although not always) too large. Then they get quoted and quoted again and again with subsequent posts which causes the problem to go on page after page sometimes. If they are too big they might get deleted.

    If that bothers anybody then I'm sorry but we do have to keep the forum flowing smoothly for everyone. But it's only a picture deletion, it's not the end of the world! It's not a conspiracy, it's not a vendetta against anyone in particular and it's certainly not personal. It's just a picture deletion!

    So please don't post oversize pictures and please, please, please when you are replying to a post with a large picture in, don't quote the picture part. You can edit it out of the quoted text before you reply.

    Ok, you are all dismissed now :rotfl:
    I'm a Board Guide on the Quick Grabbit, Food Shopping & Groceries, Shop but don't drop, Loans and Cutting Tax boards which means I volunteer to help get your forum questions answered and keep the forum running smoothly. Pease remember, board guides don't read every post.

    Nice tip.

    Here's another which can save paper as well as ink...

    After this bit: "Once done let go of the left mouse button and you get a message stating the selected area has been copied."

    Do the following:

    1. Open Word, (or whatever you use as a word processor)
    2. Paste (Ctrl +V), press Enter (Return) key
    3. Repeat 2 above for as many times as you need for as many copies of the voucher you need.
    4. Get a grown up to help you cut out your coupons :p.

    I get 4 Wrights coupons a page with this method.

    hth.

    OB

    ps. Isn't it a shame to see how quickly people can turn on their "friends" over very little? :(

    Off to lurk for a bit. :(
