Print Multiple Web Pages at once - so clients/employees can write comments on paper
Posted on 2007-08-05
We are slowly moving toward web standards and css/box model and away from just tables to layout web pages. We have about 100 pages that run off a screen css and a print css. Most of our clients /employees are on IE6.0.
Our clients/employees like to print out the web page - make their edits and comments on paper. They hand these printed pages with comments to me to update the web sites.
How can we print hard copies of our pages for our clients to "markup, edit, write on, etc." ....
-Without all the pages flipping into landscape mode.
-without using print.css to cut off a lot of design elements.
-without using Screen Capture software that has to be captured and printed one page at a time (since we've got 100's of pages)
We have a print css but it cuts off graphically menus in two places and really doesn't show the actual page exactly like it is on the screen.
We've thought of asking our clients to use software like Techsmith's SnagIt - but then they'd have to capture and print each page individually.
Have any of you faced this issue? Any idaeas on how to work around it?
I see tons and tons of sites that look very different when printed - so it must be a common problem.
Hope I've explained this clearly.
Many many thanks, April
