Taming the size of data in a rich text field

Good day learned ones,

I have a user that is copying and pasting large pictures and entire Notes emails into a rich text file. Because of this, when this particular document is printed, most of the information is cut off from the bottom and the right side. Is there a way I can make sure that everything gets printed out? I am on v6.5. I am starting out with 125 points and will be willing to go higher if it requires a lot of thinking on your part. Thanks again.

Automatically? not really.  The printing process is dependent upon the windows drivers.  So, users have to be trained to reduce the size or shrink the page to 75% in order to print the whole thing.  

Even if you did a fixed width table, it wouldn't prevent them from pasting a large picture into the field, and the only way you could check it is to step through everything and see if you can grab the image properties to see how wide it is.

This is kinda similar to attaching files to a document and then wanting to be sure to print the document AND it's attachments.  The difference being that you have to open the documents to print them, or use some code to open and print each.

Open to other suggestions.. that's my opinion.

I agree with Marilyng, I don't think it's possible without third party software.

I asked a very similar question myself months ago....

I thought so. At not for anything within Notes. I wonder if there is anyway to encapsulate the emails and the pictures as an "attachment" in the rich text field and then provide a viewer for the user to take a peek at it. Any ideas?

Well, there are a few pieces of code that print the email with attachments, so take that code and send it to a PDF printer -  the only "viewer" that would work would be a PDF file or a multi-page tif (fax).  Or maybe .html?

You can send it to word and use a word viewer.. but I'm not sure what the point is.. when they can just open the email and read it? :)

OK, well, thx all. That answers my question. I'll have them print in landscape instead :)
