Jim's Puzzles - Help With Browsing and Printing
COPYRIGHT:
These pages are Copyright James A. Storer. Permission is given to save and print these pages for individual personal non-profit use (and hopefully enjoyment). Permission is also given for display of images from these pages (for example, on a personal web page), so long as the display is for non-profit purposes and a visible citation to these pages is included as part of the display of each image.
Browsing an Individual Puzzle Page:
Clicking on a photo or graphic gives an enlargement. Clicking on a page title gives a better typeset PDF version of that page. Clicking on a link in page text goes to somewhere else in this book. Links in further reading are external to the book.
Browsing The Thumbnail Index:
As an alternative to the table of contents, one can scroll through the thumbnail index to locate a puzzle visually; puzzles appear in the same order as the table of contents.
Browsing the Book Page:
The table of contents at the start and the index at the end work like the table of contents and thumbnails pages; the advantage of viewing the book is that one can scroll around after going somewhere. This should only be done with a reasonably fast internet download speed and it may be necessary to wait at bit after clicking on the book link until the book is fully loaded and can be viewed and navigated.
Download a PDF Of the Book:
Page numbers are included in the table of contents and in the thumbnail index at the end. Note that the pdf version is only updated periodically, and may not include all the puzzles present on the web page version.
Creating a The Book pdf from the Book Page:
On the author's Apple computer, the book pdf is created from from the book web page by viewing it in the Safari browser, and then doing print / save as pdf (being sure to specify that no headers and footers are to be added). However, on another machine and / or browser, if each puzzle page does not start on a new physical page, then the browser is not interpreting the HTML page break instructions (and a different browser may be needed). Otherwise, puzzle page numbers should have a one-to-one correspondence to physical page numbers. If not, it is because some puzzle pages are overflowing to two pages. To fix this, first check that headers or footers are not being added that take too much space, or try again with the document scaled down a bit (e.g., specify 95 percent size to the print driver). Alternately, print the table of contents separately and then for the rest specify 8.5 x 14 inch legal paper and after the pdf file is formed, electronically crop it back to 8.5 by 11 inches. Because the file is relatively large, and the potential of a non-sequential rendering process, after rendering, it may be necessary to check if some pages were "forgotten" and left blank, in which case it may be necessary to render again and even piece two copies together.
