Print Preview And Print to PDF in Chrome

Google has introduced a new Print Preview option in early development and Canary build of the Chrome browser strongly indicating that these will become available in the Stable Channel of Chrome fairly soon. If you are using Chrome 11 Beta or Chrome 12 Dev and/or Canary you can enable this feature from the “about:flags” page in Chrome (just type “about:flags” in the address bar and hit Enter).

Once Print Preview is enabled, restart the browser for the effect to take place. Open a webpage you want to print and press Ctrl+P or choose Print from the wrench menu to open the print preview panel in a new tab.


Here you will have the option to orient the page in portrait or landscape mode, choose the number of pages to print and copies to make, including two-sided printing. Additionally, you have the option to save the page as PDF using the built in “Print to PDF” feature, facilitating easy webpage-to-PDF conversion. Isn’t that dandy?

I encountered a couple of glitches when trying to print a few pages, but these are expected to be ironed out before the feature hits the stable channel, hopefully.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
