Printing topics

To print a topic, click Print in the topic tools area at the upper right.

The system displays a version of the topic that is formatted for printing, along with the Print Options box, which allows you to select the topic components that you want to print: text, references, graphics, or any combination thereof. By default, the print-formatted view includes all components. You can deselect any components that you do not want to print.

You can then use your browser's print facility to print the selected components.
