I'm having trouble printing. What should I do?
StockCharts Support January 29, 2009
All of our articles should print properly in
portrait mode using standard margin settings. We test print articles
using both Internet Explorer and Firefox on an HP LaserJet printer.
When printing a single SharpChart, it is best to use the "Print
Version" link located just below every chart. Members may want to
select the "Monochrome" color scheme first if they don't have a color
printer. If you want a print out that fills the printed page, use the
"Portrait" or "Landscape" chart size setting first.
To print a saved list of charts, first display the list in "Print" view (Extra! subscribers only).
Unfortunately, most browsers still don't print our Java-based
interactive charts properly. We recommend printing a screenshot or using a screen capture
utility to capture and print our interactive charts.
Instructions for Printing a Screenshot
Here's how you can use the tools already built into your operating
system to create and print a screenshot of our Java-based charts. Just
set up the chart exactly like you'd want it to look on the printout,
then follow the directions below. You might want to print these instruction out before starting.
Hold down the ALT key and press the Print Screen key (may be labelled PrtSc OR PrtScn).
Press the Start button and choose Run from the Start menu.
Type pbrush.exe and press Enter to start Windows' built-in Paintbrush program
Chose Edit > Paste from the menu bar. If the program asks you about enlarging the bitmap, press Yes.
Use the File > Print command to send the image to your printer.
Windows Vista users can use Vista's "Snipping" tool which is discussed in
this article from About.com.
Press and release Command+Shift+4 (the command key has a cloverleaf or apple on it)
Drag the mouse across the portion of the screen you want to print.
Find the newest file called Picture 1 (or Picture 2, etc.) on your hard drive or desktop.
Highlight the file by clicking on it once.
Select Print from the File menu.
