Print Edit allows editing of the web page content while in Print Preview mode. Editing the web page prior to printing can compact the layout and remove unwanted content such as adverts, sidebars and blank pages.
Print Edit mode is entered from Print Preview mode by clicking on the Edit button next to the Close button on the toolbar. Alternatively, Print Edit mode can be entered from the Print Edit button menu on the main toolbar, or from the Print submenu on the context menu (after right-clicking the web page). The Print Edit button can be added to the main toolbar by right-clicking the toolbar and selecting Customize.
In Print Edit mode, any of the displayed content elements can be formatted, hidden or deleted, prior to printing in Print Preview mode. Click the Preview button to return to Print Preview mode or the Close button to return to normal browsing mode. It is possible to switch repeatedly between Print Edit mode and Print Preview mode.
There are three mode commands:
вЂў Edit - enters Print Edit mode from Print Preview mode.
вЂў Preview - exits Print Edit mode and returns to Print Preview mode.
вЂў Close - exits Print Edit mode and returns to normal browsing mode.
CSS Print Stylesheets can be applied to the web page displayed in Print Edit mode, so that the web page looks similar to the print pages displayed in Print Preview mode. Alternatively, CSS Print stylesheets can be removed from the print pages displayed in Print Preview mode, so that the print pages look similar to the web page displayed in normal browsing mode.
There are eight edit commands:
вЂў Deselect - deselects all currently selected elements.
вЂў Format - formats the currently selected elements (may affect the position of other elements).
вЂў Hide - hides the currently selected elements (will not affect the position of other elements).
вЂў Delete - deletes the currently selected elements (will affect the position of other elements).
вЂў Hide Except - hides all elements except those currently selected.
вЂў Delete Except - deletes all elements except those currently selected.
вЂў Undo - undoes the affect of the last edit command.
вЂў Undo All - undoes the affect of all previous edit commands.
The Format command allows up to eight format properties to be applied. These format properties primarily affect the layout of the content and are intended to reduce the space that the content occupies on the printed page.
The Hide command can use either of two techniques to hide elements. Using the normal technique, elements cannot be selected after being hidden. Using the alternative technique, elements can still be selected after being hidden, but may not always be fully hidden.
The Undo command normally reinstates the select boxes that were displayed prior to the 'undone' command, but this behaviour can be turned off.
The Format, Hide and Delete commands apply to the selected elements and all of their nested sub-elements. The Format command has no effect on elements or sub-elements that have already been formatted.
An element can be selected by moving the mouse, so that the highlight box (solid border) is positioned over the element, and then clicking the mouse. The highlight box then changes to a selection box (dashed border). Any number of elements can be selected, one after another.
A selected element can be deselected by moving the mouse, so that the highlight box (solid border) is positioned over the selected element, and then clicking the mouse. The selection box (dashed border) then disappears. Alternatively, all selected elements can be deselected by clicking the Deselect button.
The color and width of the borders of the highlight and select boxes can be changed.
The options can be accessed using the built-in Options drop-down button or the normal Add-ons Options dialog box.
The options allow the user to:
вЂў Apply/remove print stylesheets in preview and edit modes.
вЂў Set the color and width of the border of the highlight box.
вЂў Set the color and width of the border of the select boxes.
вЂў Choose the properties applied by the format command.
вЂў Choose that elements can still be selected after Hide.
вЂў Choose to reinstate the select boxes after Undo.
