I.E. printing

    Is there a setting that would allow an oversize web page to print correctly
    on a deskjet printer?
    Maybe I should ask if this is an I.E. or printer setting first....

    Here is the web page and when I try to print it cuts off the right side of
    page.

    thanks,

    Shall I just ask my psychic adviser what what version of Windows and
    what version of Internet Explorer you have?

    <later>

    The Tarot cards say you have either IE 7 or IE 8. If this is correct,
    see Shrink To Fit in Print Preview.

    HOTFIX: The right side of the first page of a printed .eml file may be
    truncated on a computer that has IE8 installed (12 Mar-10)
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/980333

    Tip: Ignore the reference to EML file in the KB title

    Tip: Expect this fix to be included in the next Cumulative Update for IE8

    There is a recent hotfix which may affect printing from the browser--meant
    to fix problems with printing E-mails. So, perhaps you could then at least
    try File, Send, Page by E-mail and print it that way? <eg>

    Thanks to both responses.
    Did either one of you go to the web site and try printing the page?
    Wondering if it was just on my end.

    You are correct, it does not print correctly.
    But this is a problem with many browsers and webpages.
    You will have to tinker with the scaling factor until it looks the
    way you want.

    And which of the two x86 platform hotfixes would the OP apply to his
    "Windows XP Home Edition" operating system?

    Fix312913 = Internet Explorer 8 for Vista and Server 2008
    Fix312914 = Windows 7/WindowsServer 2008 R2

    [Hey, I don't write these KBs, you know. <w> And it seems like no one ever
    proofreads most of the stuff MS promulgates these days.]

    Since the Symptoms section of KB980333 references Outlook Express (which is
    not included in Vista or Win7), one might conclude that the x86 version
    [i.e., Ieframe.dll & Ieui.dll v8.0.6001.22993] would be appropriate hotfix
    for IE8 in WinXP (x86).

    Note that those are QFE branch file versions & that installing this hotfix
    might put you in QFE branch permanently. If this printing bug can be
    tolerated for a while longer, I'd strongly recommend waiting until one of
    the upcoming IE updates includes this fix.

    Oops. Good catch. I wonder if the updated ieframe.dll could be
    extracted and used in XP anyway? ; )

    LOL...Just thought a quick reality check might be in order on this hot fix.

    I would make the same assumption given the fact that they explicitly
    reference Outlook Express. But when I went to the actual download site for
    the hot fixes I noticed that they explicitly excluded any mention of Windows
    XP.

    I haven't tried one of the installers so I don't know if they do a OS check
    or not before installing.

    I think if I were affected by this bug your advice about waiting for and IE
    Update would be well advised:eek:)

    LT. I tried printing your `problem page' using both IE 7.0.6002.18005 and
    Firefox 3.6 but it always truncates the right portion, even if hide
    `Favorites' in IE and `bookmarks' in Firefox.
    Just wanted you to know. It seems like a general browser issue.

    Really? I devised my repro while still using XP. Care to try it? (The
    repro I mean.)

    http://social.answers.microsoft.com...4ea03110#18c71480-0667-4b43-a3a3-35ab6d2f9810

    You may have to be logged in with your Live ID to open it exactly there.
    (BTW I modified a right-click Shortcut of its Edit to make that. <w>)
    Otherwise find my reproduction scenario in it. ; )


    Good luck

    Thanks Robert.

    I've got a Windows XP Home Edition machine with IE8 installed on it
    available to this morning, and I can reproduce the .EML printing issue(using
    Outlook Express).

    However, the OP is claming the truncated text issue is arising for him when
    printing the web page he sited directly from IE8(Not from and EML file).
    That problem I can not reproduce here using Windows XP Home and IE8.
    Perhaps we need some more feedback from the OP on this

    As for the hotfixes currently available for the EML printing issue, they are
    definately intended for Windows Vista and higher. The hotfix for
    Vista(Fix312913) is a .msu package:

    "IE8-Windows6.0-KB980333-x86.msu"

    To answer your question about extracting "ieframe.dll" from the hotfix
    package, I used EXPAND to extract the contents of the .msu file and the .cab
    file within the .msu file. There is no "ieframe.dll" file contained in
    either:

    "IE8-Windows6.0-KB980333-x86.msu"
    or
    IE8-Windows6.0-KB980333-x86.cab

    I'm not going to waste any more printer ink or paper testing this issue, if
    Microsoft releases a hotfix for the EML printing issue for Windows XP and
    IE8 then I'd be happy to test it some more:)

    Strange. I don't know anything about .msu.

    I don't have a real printer. I used XPS Document Writer and then opened
    the .xps file with XPS Viewer. ; )


    Thanks.
