View Full Version : Printing form on legal paper

10-16-2007, 02:22 PM
Hi Everyone,

I've been slowly building a site with BV and a portion of it includes Legal forms that our departments have to fill out and print. I've used the form tool to create a great looking page, but we are having difficulty with printing. Does anyone have any knowledge of how a page could be automatically printed in legal format? I know that we can just manually change the print setting and have it print that way, but what I'm looking for is a way where after the form is filled out, that it can be printed on legal paper after clicking a button. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You.

You should be sure your web form is "printer-friendly" and found on your site via a link that would open a page independently. The target for that page should be set as _blank. - nav bars and colors/headers should be left off of that page as it's printer friendly, the page should be built no wider than '800 - if you can keep it to '700 all the better. It will be up to the individual user whether or not they can print legal size documents, some may only have access to letter size paper. Perhaps you could reduce it to letter size or consider two pages.
