    Question Printing QuiltersCache patterns?

    Could anyone tell me how to print out the block patterns on QuiltersCache website?? I did one a couple of years ago, but cannot remember how I did it.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you

    You can print them just like you print other things. Bring up the block you want. Select print from you edit bar or in my case the thing that looks like a wheel. It will let you print all pages of the block. If you want the templates you have to print them separately. Click on the part that tells you there are templates and then print as before.

    Just one thing to add to Carol's advice, be sure and set your printer setting to no scaling!
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    My icons disappeared when Chrome was put on my machine, so I have to use the old fashioned 'Control P' if the site doesn't offer a bar with icons. It does work. When you get the printer box up, you can choose which pages you want.

    I have Chrome and all I do is hit the right button on my mouse twice to the side of the pattern and it will come up print. Then I hit print and the box for printing comes up on the left of my screen and I hit print on that and it shows the pattern I want to print and I hit print again and it prints it out. Some times there will be two or more pages and you have to do the same for each page and the templates.

    I always do a print preview to make sure there are pages what I need, hit print and there it goes. I think those patterns have a print friendly place to print.

    So ya'll are able to print more than one page at a time? I'm running IE on Win 7 and all it will do is print the page I'm on. How do you manage to print all the pages a pattern is on?

    Belfrybat, that sounds more like a printer problem than computer. I had IE on windows 7 for years and printed anything I wanted.

    Crafty pat -Thank you for the tip. My GD answered a few questions when she installed Chrome, but I didn't ask that one. Right click twice. Got it.

    I have found that printing on my printer, that I usually have to adjust the printing somewhere around 133% in order to get them to come out as specified.

    Honey, if I can do it, you surely can do it! My DD taught me to use the "Print Preview" so I could print only the pages I need. That's a paper saver cuz sometimes the whole blog would print (if I was printing something like a picture from the QB). And I was printing one page at a time on "cache." There are not too many things I can do on the computer but print hard copy is one I've learned. I don't know how to save.
    Good luck, you can do it!
    One step at a time, always forward.

    No, not a printer problem as I have used three printers. When I am on a web page I can only print that one page. Quilter's Cache, unless I'm missing something, puts her patterns on multiple pages that aren't link together. See this example: http://www.quilterscache.com/A/Arkan...oadsBlock.html. I can print that page then have to click on "page 2" towards the bottom to go to the next page and print it. How are you bringing up her pages in such a way you can print multiple pages at a time?

    Hmmm, something seems to have changed on the quilterscache site. Out of curosity I just tried to print a pattern my usual way and couldn't. It always printed the whole pattern before. When I right clicked a message came up that said that wasn't allowed. Hmmm!

    If yu can't find a way to print, press ctrl and p keys at the same time.

    One word of caution. A lot of the patterns don't come out to the size they say. As in all patterns, practice on scrap fabric first and make adjustments.

    I went to your link and saw your problem....then I pressed CTRL p .... the print dialog came up with the choice to print whatever you wanted on the pattern.....happy printing!!!
    There is no place like home!

    HIT the + Sign!
    In many Quilterscache LARGER templates: before starting to print move your mouse pointer on the template. I f a +mark appears you must press it and the template will show enlarges to the proper size. Now print 100 % or no scaling. If you don't press the + your pattern will come out too small!

    That's just they way that site works. I've always had to print each page separate. It's never downloaded the entire pattern in one file. At least in the several years that I've used quilterscache.

    Belfreybat have you missed the part on some print pages which give a choice of pages?
    Finished is better than a UFO
