    Didn't see a way to print the threads... is there an easy way to paint the entire thread without going page by page?

    Currently the only way to print a thread is one page at a time.

    I'll add the idea of an alternative to the suggestion master list.

    Thanks for reminding us. We now have a demo working on our dev site for Milepoint. We don't like that it prints the ads so we are working on some div exclusions to see how we can perhaps eliminate that part in your printing. That is likely the easy for right now. For the next phase of this, we're working on eliminating signatures from the print version as well as giving you some better printing options such as font size. so for longer pages you won't be rushing to Staples to buy reams of paper for your printer.

    Again, thanks for the reminder and we are certainly on it now.

    Not sure if it accidentally got propagated to production server or not, but print functionality now shows up (in Thread Tools, and as a link for each post, which seems to do the same thing).

    Thanks for the effort - I assume it's still being worked on.

    I was having trouble finding the d3v3lopm3nt server, too ;)

    We have now added "Print Topic" for the convenience of our members. You'll find the link for this at the top of each thread. It prints without ads. We are still working on additional enhancements that will allow you to set font size, etc. but the current version is a heck of a lot better than simply Command-P. Hope this helps and thanks for the input.

    I know a few of us are having problems with the print option being located to the right of the reply/like buttons. Every single time we go to reply to a post, we hit print. :rolleyes: Could this not be moved to the left side, instead?

    Let's take a look. We may comment that out and simply rely on the top page option. You bring up a good point and re-enforces the point that it takes all of us interested in making MilePoint great. Thanks.

    Thanks for the quick answer, Randy. Looks like there are a couple of options that will work nicely. :)

    I quote the inimitable milchap, defender of the sparsely inhabited provinces well north of the HOM:

    http://milepoint.com/forums/threads...-your-stay-with-us.484/page-2301#post-2269571

    "Why on earth would there be a print button ? :eek:"

    Concerto's request, supra, that the button be moved is excellent. Personally I would like it removed. MPers could always take a screenshot of the particular post for later printing.

    Thanks again for the continued evolvement of the MP interface to make us happier and more productive.

    Go Seahawks.:p

    I agree, remove it from next to Like and Reply, or if you really need it down there, move it over next to Edit and Report.

    I'm sorry, as it runs out we won't be able to move the print button. In fact, upon further review it appears we will have to comment out the reply button instead. Just sayin'.

    I have no problem with tondoleo's support for the Hawker Seahawk. It's a very nice plane, although the seat pitch is tight and there is very limited recline.

    Thank you G.:)

    I do not know what else Mr. Petersen could have been thinking about on an aviation bulletin board.

    He is quite enigmatic. No one can ever guess what he might be thinking.

    all good. We harnessed up a team of Bronco's to pull the 'Print' menu item away from 'Reply'. The new 'Print Topic' option remains at the top of the page where you can 'Sea' it. Appreciate the 'hawk'-like eyes around here who noticed that it could have interfered with our members ability to Reply.

    Randy, that is just super. You really bowl me over with your responsiveness.
