PRINTING TIPS

All the material on this web site is copyrighted but you can print from it for your own personal use. See tips below.

PRINTING FROM YOUR BROWSER


Of course, you can print directly from your browser, using the PRINT function.   BUT, IF YOU JUST HIT PRINT WHILE LOOKING AT A SWIMMING HOLE LISTING IT WILL PRINT ALL THE SWIMMING HOLES IN THE STATE OR STATES, NOT JUST THE ONE YOU ARE LOOKING AT!  LOTS OF PAPER!

If you wish to print just one (or a few) swimming holes, use your CURSOR to HIGHLIGHT the swimming holes listing(s) you want individually then click FILE > PRINT > SELECTION.

You can print the state map as well by highlighting it and clicking FILE > PRINT > SELECTION. Some state maps are wider than can be printed in this manner. For these, in the PRINT menu, select PROPERTIES > SETUP and print it LANDSCAPE rather than PORTRAIT.

Finally, print any "LOCAL AREA MAPS" used in that state using the same technique as for State maps. Most color printers allow the user to select the option of printing in grey tones instead of full color. For maps with a background color, this will save colored ink. Also, color printer users can adjust the dpi setting on the printer and print out color maps in “draft” mode, which uses color ink sparingly. If you print the maps using the highest resolution setting, it will take a long time to print and it will use up lots of ink.

PRINTING FROM MS WORD


Older versions of MS WORD will not handle the table structure used in this web page. However, newer versions, such as WORD 9.0 (which I got with Office 2000) will enable you to produce a very usable swimming holes booklet that you can also keep up to date.

I suggest that you PRINT in entirety the states that you are interested in, and insert this into a 3 hole loose leaf book in alphabetical sort (and record the date that you did so.) Then, when you visit the web page again, look for swimming hole listings that have an "DATE UPDATED" more recent than your last print date and print only those listings and insert them into your loose leaf, also in alphabetical sort .

To print from one of these newer MS WORD versions, open the state listing which you would like to print. Right click and SAVE the page to your hard drive. Start MS WORD and open the saved web page. (If you have the newer version of MS WORD, it will render the page accurately. Otherwise, this won't work.)

To make an updatable loose leaf book, you must start each new swimming hole listing on a new page. To do so in MS WORD, use INSERT > BREAKS > PAGE BREAK before each swimming hole listing. Use PRINT PREVIEW to make sure it looks good, then PRINT the whole state. (You may still need to print the state map separately, as described above, if it needs to be printed LANDSCAPE)
