The 'Search' function is just above the icon, and is a handy tool to use if you're looking for a specific quilt pattern or other document.
When you're in a quilt pattern or a quiltmaking article, click that little icon. You'll find that it strips the unwanted 'fluff,' that isn't necessary for your files.
You will need to print each page separately, but lots of people I correspond with pull up a page and then copy and paste the contents into another document, such as a Microsoft Word file (whatever works is fine). That method lets you paste all pages into one continuous article, which saves paper.
When you click the printer icon, remember that you can also save patterns as PDF files for later use, instead of printing them.
Please remember copyright laws and do not paste the patterns onto another Web site or use them professionally. Quilt patterns and other articles are for personal use.
