    I'm not sure how to make it big enough to read.... how to ready it for copying...what to copy it to....paint or wordpad or notepad.... Like I said in a different post, now that I live alone I have to depend on the kindness of strangers (or fellow players) for such problems... Our family had complementary abilities and mine did not include the workings of modern equipment. I refuse to have a cell phone, for example, but my computer is the current love of my life. Thanks in advance...

    Can you post a link to the graph you're talking about?

    It is in the Stratics Article about "the purest Paladin ever." I'm trying to make a purest paladin. He lists all his armor, etc... Every time I try printing it I cannot see it even with my magnifier.

    Did you try printing it in Landscape instead of Portrait?

    You're talking about this graph
    http://stratics.com/ams/my-setup-the-purest-paladin-ever.13/
    Sounds like you're trying to print directly off the screen instead of the actual image
    Right click to save as image
    Print the image in Landscape mode, as Nexus suggested
    I just did it on regular-sized paper and can read it fine, and I can't see all that well up close, so on bigger paper it should be even easier to read

    I know how you feel about your computer and Cell Phones. It was a LONG time before I finally caved and got the Cell Phone. I still think it's some sort of "scam" to charge people 10X what we used to pay for mabell to these phone companies and their outrageous prices... but I really needed something for work when I was "on call". Now that I have the silly thing I won't part with it though. And now I am annoyed that every other week the old home phone people are trying desperately to get me to have a home phone again.... but I only need one damn phone I don't need a home phone... and since it's through the cable well if cable is out so is the phone. Modern home phones seem to now need power to be used... so they aren't "better" in an emergency than your cell phone.

    As for the printing I'd do what Yadd said and copy the image to paint. You can even enlarge the part you want there and then print from that.

    And my computer is the love of my life as well... it's my stress relief and the gateway to my friends. Without it well... life would suck. I remember years ago when I left my ex... I chose the Stereo and Microwave and left the TV/VCR. Left with choices like that now I'd just take the Computer and Microwave... I'd still leave the TV and DVD player and all the game consoles... I don't really watch TV save for while I'm at work... My computer plays all my movies and music...

    Wow, thanks guys.... I did try it in landscape mode by the way. And Malagaste, you sound so much like me its scary. I will try it again after dinner. My late husband (we have been married for 55 years but he has been dead for the last nine), predicted this modern world, even that everything would be in "the cloud." By the way, my sense of humor is very strong, so take anything I say with at least a chuckle.

    It worked!!!! Thank you all so much!!! Woot! I have played UO for almost 18 years, alone most of the time, down from 7 accounts to 2 now, and still love it.!!!! There are certain people whose posts I watch, people like you, Malagaste, Obsidian, and God of course, although I am dubious about him, but he does nice template. Anyone found the fountain of youth? If so, send me a map.
    Lol, age is not so bad, I read 3-4 books a week and enjoy my own company. Which is one of the most important things in life I think. Much too much hate on the internet, in PVP chat, and everywhere. People are not as hidden behind their keyboards as they think. All older people seem to feel that things were better in the old days, and they are probably right.... Thanks again.
