I really like the show notes, but find I have a problem printing them.

I would like to print the notes so they are the only thing on the page. I get a complete banner across the top starting with “old dogs” on the top left to FAQ’s  More” on the bottom right of the top and “Search this site” on the top right going down to “photo story” on the bottom right.  These banners take up a good part of the page.  Is there a way to set up the printing so I only get the lesson?

Thank you.

There may be a plugin that I could find for the site that has the capability to print just the article without all the other page stuff. I’ll keep an eye out. Meanwhile, what I use is the Evernote clipper. If you use you can capture any web page article and choose the “Simplified Article” option. 

If you have the Geeks on Tour learning library on thumb drive, there is a folder named WhatDoesThisButtonDo with a .pdf of every one of the Show NOtes. I am trying to get them added to web pages too. So, when you view one of the show notes, when you see “Download .pdf” click there to get a printable copy of the notes.

Let me know which episodes and I’ll make sure the link is there.
