Prnting Individual Profiles - Part II

+7 votes
Is there a way to print clean and simple individual profiles?

I reviewed the G2G Feed for help and got the following five methods: 1) Make and print a screenshot using the PrtScr button, 2) Use a screen-capture widget (usually a browser add-on) to capture and print the profile, 3) Save the profile as a .pdf, html, or text document and print that, 4) Use your browser's File->Print function, or 5) Use <right-click> Print from your browser to print the profile.

All these methods have the same limitation: they print more than just the individual's profile.

You see, I just want the individual's name, vitals dates, parents, siblings, children, and biography. I don't want to print the <profile>, <edit>, <images> buttons at the top; the DNA ad, the list of images, the collaboration links or the help tips located down the right side of the profile. Nor do I want to print the "Cousin bait", match and merge suggestions, or "memories" located at the bottom of every profile. Basically, I want the header and what's inside the biography box.

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a button that would convert a profile to a pdf … just like Wikipedia does?
That's what I'd like to see.

How about old school? Copy paste the info you want into a word doc, and print.

It would work, but it is still labor-intensive. I have 239 profiles on my watchlist (not that I would want to print them all). But it would be a monumental task to cut, paste, edit, save and print each one. I could just copy the header, but I wouldn't have the bio. If I copy the bio from the edit screen window, I have to remove or modify the wiki markup. If I copy from the public profile, I still have to edit out the images and help comments from the right column.

Would one of the family tree tools provide the information you want? You can find these on the family tree tab.
