iPrint v6 is Freeware!
« on: December 22, 2009, 11:27:02 AM »
Yesterday iPrint v6 was released free for business and/or personal use at http://www.clicktoconvert.com/iPrint/

I've been using it for several months and it's rock solid on WinXP. A really decent way to save on printing costs. :Thmbsup:

Thanks for the heads up -
There are a few programs that do this, with FinePrint being the king of the mountain for years -- but FinePrint is not free.
iPrint looks quite nice.  :up:

I think priPrinter should also be mentioned here. I find it nicer than FinePrint, mostly because cropping is very convenient with it. It is a bit expensive (like FinePrint), but the banner of the unregistered version is unobtrusive enough that I'm using it all the time for personal printing. On the other hand, I'm using an old version, and living in fear that new versions will make the banner larger...

I'll certainly try out iPrint now... I'm not sure it can remove margins or crop at all, though.

UPDATE: No, it cannot. I often print papers, which have large margins to be readable on a large piece of paper. When printing these 2-up, the margins take up all the space unless I can get rid of them, and the text becomes tiny. So, without this feature, this program is useless to me.

I've found Printliminator bookmarklet to be very easy to use with Firefox.

 (Ctrl+Alt+Click="this is what I want to print", and everything else will be removed at once)

You might consider for this purpose Readability (http://lab.arc90.com...riments/readability/ ), which is the best bookmarklet ever, automatically reformatting the page and getting rid of the crappy ads and navigation while magically figuring out what stuff it should keep.

Also, the Firefox extension Aardvark (https://addons.mozil...S/firefox/addon/4111 ) allows you to selectively edit a page, including removing elements and stripping out width restrictions.

came across this elsewhere and wanted to post about it but found it here - it really is super to tidy up a page and make it readable/printable :up:
