Does anyone know if this is possible? And if so, how?

Most OSs have a print screen capture option but if you want to capture a scrolling post then you will probably have to use a 3rd party application such as SnagIt which is a paid for product (free trial), although very good if you need to do it often. I believe that Firefox has a built-in option for that if you happen to use it. Otherwise you can highlight > copy > paste into a text editor \ wordprocessor and print from there. There are a lot of other applications that will do this, probably some free ones if you search. Most browsers offer some kind of print function although I haven't used them much. Some offer the ability to save a page as a PDF which can then be printed. So a lot of options depending on what you want to do, how often you want to do it and what you want it to look like.

Thanks both. The spanner did it for me -- with Print View I could print it as a PDF, and edit it from there. So a combination of both your suggestions!

Cheers.

aka pdfjoiner.com

I have used this for several years. Works well, is fast and will deal with a variety of file formats include images (such as .jpg).

Or if you have a Mac:

-use the above-mentioned Print View on the TLF thread
-select the text of the post(s) you want to print
-open the print dialog (Cmd-P) and select the radio button saying "Print Selection Only".

Easy!

Simply select the text, right click and select "print" (Chrome) or "print selection" (Firefox). Presumably similar in other browsers.
