How to print just that certain section only.
///////////////////////////////

Ever want to print out a small (or even large) section of a page or e-mail that was somewhere in the middle without printing our the entire page/message?  Here’s what to do:

Highlight what you want to print (while holding your left mouse button down, slide your mouse over the text and then let up the button) and then on your keyboard hold down the control (ctrl) button while hitting the “p” key.  This will bring up a box to do with printing.  Toward the middle of the box on the left side is a “print range” area.  Click the circle next to “selection” and then the OK button at the bottom.  Yes, it’s that simple. NOTE: if the page contains columns (with or without a table) this may get unexpected results – pay attention to what the mouse will let you highlight.

-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-
Note:  All references to “click” are using the left mouse button unless otherwise noted.

THE ALLEN COUNTY – FORT WAYNE HISTORICAL SOCIETY “HISTORY CENTER DIGITAL COLLECTIONS”
Do you have ancestry that stems from the Allen County, Indiana area? If so, the History Center Digital Collections, sponsored by the Allen County-Fort Wayne Historical Society will be of interest to you. Thus far, 571 items have been digitized and posted online. The majority of the collection seems to be photographs, with many early documents relating to area history also included. You can also find digital images of various artifacts at the site, items like bottles, beads, an axe head, and so forth. You can browse the collection, or using their search engine; search the full collection, or narrow the search. The Digital Collection is made up of four categories:

 

  • The Glorious Gate
  • Making of a People
  • Miami Indiana
  • Thirteen Millennia

 

About the collection. Search the collection. Thanks to a note at on the MoSOG Messenger blog to again alert me to these Indiana digital docs.

Locally, if no one has thrown you an autograph or release party, you can do one yourself.  Make sure you notify all the local media as well as book stores, libraries, etc. in addition to sending out personal invitations.

Other frequently used page numbering formats:

 

  • Adding alternate numbers, in sequence, when more information needs added: for example a family book has been numbered and already indexed but new photographs or generations need to be added between page 6 and 7 this can be done by adding 6a/6b/6c/6d or 6i, 6ii, 6iii, 6iv. This is not recommended – renumber the book or add cross reference addenda pages – better yet offer the new data free of charge (open source) on your website.

Call-outs: Brief passages of text lifted from within the publication placed in larger type size (and occasionally font) to gain attention.  They are often inserted into the text (divided by the change of font/size, sometimes boxed, or with other graphics) as an element which breaks the text or copy.  Usually, it is “teaser” copy – attention-getting and draws readers into the item.

Clip Art: Commercially produced “stock” images, already prepared, many times found in collections.  Generally copyright free with some limitations, it can be “cut and pasted” directly into the publication. – see art
