question Printing issue
« Thread started on: Nov 23rd, 2005, 3:05pm »

Using stickeis 5.2A. I can create a new stickie and print it to a networked printer. If I receive a stickie from another computer, I can send it the printer, it appears to go with no error messages but the print never happens. Also, if I take the received stickie and paste it into a new stickie and try and print, it acts the exact same way and nothing comes out.

Any suggestions. The received stickies are from version 4.5

Printing support isn't great in Stickies, I'll acknowledge that. If it were up to me, I'd remove it altogether, but that wouldn't be friendly and people would complain..

(whole idea is that you're supposed to be saving paper, not printing on it...)

So no, I've not actually got any ideas. Except maybe to ask what happens if you cut and paste with no formatting (hold shift) into a new sticky?

is it possible to print all stickies or os there a windows option to print a screenshot which would have the same effect.

I realise the point about trying to cut down on paper but i have a very feasible reason for printing.

I use stickies to log messages and notes for myself and my boss. This can mean alot of stickies on screen. when I need to pass these messages/notes on a print all option would be very useful.....This still cuts down on the number of pieces of paper from dozens to one.

Any input would be appreciated

Yes, you can print the screen by pressing the PrintScreen button on your keyboard, then paste it into something like Word to print it I guess.

Of course, it would be better if your boss also ran Stickies as then you could send him/her Stickies directly over your network!

I do realise that some people really don't like the idea of Stickies, and will point blank refuse to run it, or any app like it. Ah well, it's a free country, eh?

thanks for the response, that works well enough for me for the time being, although an inbuilt print selection tool would be useful.

I would love to be able to just send the stickies over, however my boss, like alot of others is technologically dyslexic, even for something as simple as stickies.

sadly I think there is still a need for paper (although in hugely reduced amounts) for the prehistoric creatures who remain unable to fathom computers no matter how hard we try to teach them. cry
