Document Printing Information

Be advised that the images displayed on the internet are meant for viewing purposes, therefore printing difficulties may occur. But the following are answers to any printing questions or problems that you may encounter.

When I print a document the pages come out black or with a gray background. This never happened before, why is it happening now?

  • We've changed image format from GIF to PNG and the fix for this problem is to upgrade your browser to it's most recent version. The latest version of all major browsers have excellent PNG support.

When I print the document it does not print on one page. Try either of the following:

  • Under Page Setup, from the browser, set the margins to it's lowest allowed value.
  • The print command from any browser will not print the entire image.  The image can be downloaded to a machine, then opened in imaging software and resized for optimal printing.  Alternately, a viewer that supports the PNG file type can be installed as a plugin to your browser.   Many viewers resize the image for optimal printing.
