How can I properly print MakeUseOf articles?

William Brown January 4, 2012

When I try to print MakeUseOf articles I receive some black over-printing that makes it had to read. It looks like some words are in a weird typeface. How can I fix this?

    You will have to find out what is actually causing the problem,
    browser, printer settings or the format of the web page.


    1. try different browser: firefox, chrome
    2. try to adjust printer options like printing area etc,
    check print preview.
    3.If this does not work, convert the page to pdf and print.

        Can you explain more about this black over-printing, does this happen on particular characters only ?

        You can also use their bookmarklet and addon.

        They also have a "make it readable bookmarklet"
