Well, I found a previous thread in the Knitty coffeeshop under the Suggestions forum - but the last post was back in January so apparently it's not a too much of a bone of contention. I did put in a reply adding my voice. Maybe it will be heard.

This is why I bought a laser printer. It seems more expensive up front, but a $100 toner cartridge prints 3000 pages (three zeros not a typo) and does it at 20 pages per minute. And I do labels and index cards and all kinds of other cool stuff. Add to that saving some money by buying it at a discount off of eBay, and I couldn't be happier. I'm still on my first cartridge, too, and it doesn't look like I'll be running out any time soon (I've had it for over a year).

after you highlight, right-click and select "copy." Once you're in Word, right-click and choose "paste."

Thanks for the feedback, ladies!

Yesterday I copied a pattern to Excel and I have to say that I found the "formatting" easier in Excel than Word. I think I'll be using Excel from now on when printing patterns from knitty...

I print it as landscape into a pdf document, no copying or pasting.

A pdf converter is free.
