when I hit print it prints all pages on the website and I may only want one?
Thanks

It appears to be dependent on the app and the document type. For example, when going to a PDF in Safari (a web page that presented a PDF) I was given an option to print all or a range. Same thing in Mail. But going to a regular web page in Safari does not give the option. It could be that a single web page is considered one "page" by the app, not the several pages it may take to print, and so you don't get the option.

thanks
but thats terrible.
If I take a screen shot and print it it only prints as a 4x6, I guess it thinks its a photo.
So is there any way to print a photo bigger then 4x6?
Or maybe some other way to get it to work?

I always use MS Word to manipulate screen shots and it works very well when you "Format" your document to .3" to .5" margins all the way around. You can then insert your screen shot and you will be very surprised at the quality available which will be much better than 4" x 6".

I guess the question is - *must* you do this work from the iOS device? Is there some reason you can't use your Mac?

One solution would be to buy a copy of Printopia. Then you could AirPrint as a PDF to your Mac. Of course, at that point, we're back to working on your Mac, so the question remains - is there some reason you can't do this work on your Mac?

Printopia only requires that the Mac with the enabling software be turned on (not sleeping) and on the same wireless network as the iOS device. The iOS device can be anywhere where you can contact that network. Obviously, the printer targeted must be on that network also. I have my printer plugged into my Airport via USB and all my computers as well as iOS devices can print to it as long as the computer with the Printopia software is on. I think I could even do this remotely via Linkedin but I haven't tried that. The reason I do this is because my printer is not AirPrint compatible directly. It's an older HP.
