Printing lessons with notes and tags

Postby rondabrowning » Mon Oct 19, 2015 5:46 pm

As I highlight items discussed in our Sunday meetings, it would be nice to be able to print the lesson or talk with the notes and tags that I have made along the way of the discussion. Is this an option? I can print my highlights, but the notes I have made with the highlights will not print. Anyone been able to make this happen?

I'm not aware of a way to do this from the article. You can print notes from the notebook, but that's not quite what you're looking for.

For preparing to teach my Sunday School lesson, I highlight a talk with different colors. However, I can't find a way to print the talk with the color highlights. I always lose them when going to print which makes it frustrating when I want to use the lesson to teach. I usually end up printing it and then taking a pen and marking the areas I want to focus on. Ugh.

Any ideas on how to print a conference talk with my highlights?

It doesn't look like it's possible currently – you could send feedback using the Feedback link at the bottom of the conference talk page to route your feedback to the developers!

I don't get it. I'm on a General Conference talk right now in this web browser. I have highlights in said conference talk. I hit the print icon at the upper right of the talk (which seems identical to the browser's print button), and I print the talk and the talk includes my highlights, in color. What am I missing? (Using Windows 7 Pro and Firefox.)

Ooooh. Browsers have a print setting (File > Page Setup in Firefox and Internet Exploder) which let you say whether or not to print background colors and images - you must check this box and _then_ your highlights will print.

Liz got it. She's right. In Chrome, if you click "more settings" in the print preview you can select "Background graphics" and then the highlights show up.

It's possible for a web site to force the browser to print background colors, at least for some browsers:
