    Default Help/Tips for Printing a Xara Website

    I have built a six page website. A couple of the pages have a lot of content [terms and conditions, stock] and so are quite 'long'.

    I want to be able to print all six pages out so [A] I can keep a hard-copy record and [B] so I can mark up any typos.

    Exporting and then printing is proving problematic.

    The two 'long' pages scale to fit on one page - and the type is 'tiny'.

    I've tried exporting to all the various formats offered and none work satisfactorily.

    I've tried playing with printer settings and page setup - again no luck.

    Has anyone got a good solution? Thank you.

    Chrome has an extension that can capture a complete page as a PDF or image.

    Hello,

    If you have Xara Designer Pro, you could “Save As” the file and use a print page layout.

    If you have just Web Designer, you can fix it to do the same. Download a trial version of Designer Pro or Page & Layout Designer (preferably a corresponding version of your Web Designer product). Copy the page templates from the trial version folder "Program Files/Xara/.../Templates/ENG" to the corresponding Web Designer folder. Now you can do normal print jobs with Web Designer.

    As a PDF Export, I have a product that allows Tile Large Pages / Tile All Pages which basically slices everything so it fits in page length chunks.
    As I don't use Adobe Acrobat reader, I can't advise if that has the same feature.

    Many thanks to all - some great suggestions.

    In the end I exported the website as individual .htm files [one per page].

    Opened those up in MS Edge and printed them off from there. It seems to autoformat to page wide and just runs each page on.
