          5. ONLTN1: notable pros thru cons
            1. ONLTN6: can turn a single-sided printer into 2-sided much easier
            2. ONLTO8: the free version is generally fully useable as watermark is not intrusive
            3. ONLTP3: keeps a copy of every printout

          4. ONL0V3: I ref #1 ~10min ago from ONL0WL
          5. ONL17T: on ‘Enki :OBVHOL’ :ONL17T
            1. ONL181: due to recommendation ONL0WL, now install {from ONL196 to have that auto-update}
              1. ONL1EF: VirusTotal report (0 of 66) so run
              2. ONL1IB: installs to ‘C:\Program Files\ObviousIdea\GreenCloud’
              3. ONL1X6: at ~99.9% of install get popup ‘Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable (x64) \ Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable (x64)\ [% complete ~60%]’ gives popup ‘Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable (x64) \ Error 1935.An error occurred during the installation of assembly ‘Microsoft.VC80.MFC,type=”win32″,version=”8.0.50727.42″.publicKeyToken=”1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b”.processorArchitecture=”amd64″. Please refer to Help and Support for more information.\OK’
                1. ONL24I: press Ok and ‘configures’ undoes its progress bar then quits.
                2. ONLTSI: so far this hasn’t harmed performance
              4. ONL26X: then in ~1 sec get ‘Setup has finished installing GreenCloud Printer ..’ and opens http://www.obviousidea.com/windows-software/greencloud-printer/eco-friendly-pdf-greencloud-printer-installed-start-to-be-green-today/
              5. ONL2CW: try printing ‘http://www.healthline.com/health/mens-health/what-causes-low-energy-men#overview1 :ONKZNP
                1. ONL2D3: get popup ‘GreenCloud Printer \This version is limited to 10 pages. To process more, upgrade to the pro version. \ OK ’
                2. ONL2EQ: then get popup ‘An updated version is available \ Do you want to install it now?’ -pick yes.
                3. ONL2LP: delete last pages, set ‘Print two sided’ select ‘4 per page’ + ‘ink savings: small’ then print: good
        3. ONL2WD: model CleanPrint

          1. ONL4M8: overall: seems like a winner
          2. ONL4E1: notable pros thru cons
            1. ONL2WV: notable pro: cross platform via browser plugin :ONL2WV
            2. ONL4ER: garbage text: auto huge cutting of almost all
            3. ONL4FG: allows restore/removal of text semi-easily
            4. ONL4KS: has many else infinite undo feature
            5. ONL4I6: note allows HTML
            6. ONL4F5: only 1 note allowed
            7. ONLWDB: Google Cloud Print & to-PDF fail but Chrome ‘Save to PDF’ works fine per ‘printing :ONLVWO
            8. ONL4IJ: sub-headings cut by default (but can be restored)
            9. ONL4JC: some headings cut manually that can’t be undone –bug
            10. OOR01J: even when idle uses DRAM between 192 to 294 KB :OOR01J

              1. ONL34Q: my use
                1. ONL356: due to ONL2WV, I now 1st install
                2. ONL3E2: try using on ‘http://www.healthline.com/health/mens-health/what-causes-low-energy-men#overview1 :ONKZNP
                  1. ONLVWO: printing :ONLVWO
                    1. ONLVV5: ~right after, try print icon: then direct to printer: works fine
                    2. ONL4LS: try to Google Cloud Print :ONL4LS
                      1. ONLUV0: get URL -> URL with ‘{CleanSave: Developer info email: formatdynamics@gmail.com + Clicking “Allow” will redirect you to: http://cache-02.cleanprint.net/cpf/cpf?action=googlePrint} would like to: View and manage the files in your Google Drive + Manage your printers.

You can change this and other Account Permissions at any time.’
                        1. ONLUVB: this seems excessive
                        2. ONLUVM: click ok
                      2. ONLV0Y: then get URL saying ‘CleanSave \Select a Google Cloud printer: Save to Google Docs
                      3. ONLV1B: take that my only choice: get URL which times out in 10 seconds(bad!) saying ‘Success: saved to [next file name]’
                      4. ONLV9S: in Drive.Google, ‘What Causes Low Energy in Men?.pdf’ appears: rename with insert ONLV9S
                        1. ONLVD4: but is unreadable except for 2 lines in both Google Drive & Acrobat Reader–bad
                    3. ONLVRX: try {save to PDF}: gives http://cache-02.cleanprint.net/cpf/cpf?1490840158185 which downloads to file ‘What_Causes_Low_Energy_in_Men.pdf’ which has same bad display problems
                    4. ONLVZ2: try print icon: then ‘Save to PDF’ (of Chrome): CleanPrint.ONLVZ2.pdf in Google Drive: works great
                3. OOR03X: I disable both instances due to #OOR01J
  5. OP8MYP: shape/result
    1. OP8MYX: of poster or banner :OP8MYX
      1. OP8N08: where https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poster & https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banner
      2. OP8NB0: via ‘tiled (printing) :OP8N97’ :OP8NB0 –see that
  6. OP8N97: tiled (printing) :OP8N97
    1. OP8N9M: entry https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiled_printing
    2. OP8NBM: can be used especially to {print ‘poster or banner :OP8MYX’} as noted a OP8NB0
    3. OP8NES: cutting & assembling the tiles
      1. OP8NF1: if one wants to hide the seams
        1. OP8NFI: I found not easy, as apparently requires planning, as one have to plan for taping as affects 2 dimensions (vertical + horizontal) which seem to conflict
    4. OP8PRC: software
      1. OP8QIK: goals special OP8QIK, from most important roughly
        1. OP8QIX: can scale multiple times
          1. OP8QJK: indeed to arbitrary % :OP8QJK
        2. OP8QK1: shows where the line breaks will be
        3. OP8RDV: 1 or more, from most preferred:
          1. OP8QQY: shows preview :OP8QQY
          2. OP8QTP: outputs to PDF
            1. OP8REC: –new goal addition so not yet checked
        4. OP8QZ2: minimizes pages needed
          1. OP8QMR: which not only saves paper costs, but notably cuts the expensive manual page cutting & assembly
          2. OP8R1U: by as many as possible, from biggest 1st:
            1. OP8QLO: can offset, especially move up, the picture in each dimension so can fit the active region to minimum pages :OP8QLO
              1. OP8ROK: from decreasing bad
                1. OP8QNQ: most/near worst: 2×2 (so 4 pages) instead takes up to 3×3 (so 9 pages) :OP8QNQ
            2. OP8QKI: maximizes the page area used :OP8QKI
              1. OP8R2W: so especially no page border excess :OP8R2W
        5. OP8QRC: print cut marks
        6. OP8RZG: prints up page border
          1. OP8S32: this appears to be a feature some printers
            1. OP8S3M: so so far no software here I reviewed for it.
          2. OP8RZO: this reduces cuts per page from 4 down to
            1. OP8S23: 0 if precise
            2. OP8S29: 2 (one horizontal & 1 vertical) if imprecise
      2. OP8RMA: from most preferred, roughly
        1. OP8W88: own software, HTML/CSS based?
          1. OP8W8S: notable pros thru cons
            1. OP8W9W: seems simple enough
            2. OP8WB3: HTML/CSS likely can’t control page layout well
          2. OP8W8E: aspect search http://google.com/search?q=html+scale+everything
        2. OP8S85: Firefox just for initial print
          1. OP8SA6: notable pros thru cons
            1. OP8S8U: can set page margins so often heavily helping OP8QLO
            2. OP8SBR: does not tiling features so to output to PDF then followed up with software that does
        3. OP6NWJ: Foxit tile mode
          1. OP8Q0T: OP8Q0T: compared to ‘goals special OP8QIK’ notable pros thru cons
            1. OP6OOT: printing savings: in tile mode, just pages say 1-4 fails as that is source pages; so do ‘Current View’ that gets just 1st row
            2. OP6OX4: ‘no page border excess :OP8R2W’ –fails apparently, it has a .5 to 2in border in modes {Tile & Scale & perhaps all} unmovable it seems, meaning all pages will need 4 cuts
            3. OP8RTM: fails ‘can offset, especially move up, the picture in each dimension so can fit the active region to minimum pages :OP8QLO’.
          2. OP6NWQ: print ‘OM9185(2017.03.03(SCaLE)-).pdf’(bcard) at 0 overlap to max 3×3 pages (where Foxit seems to force a border), {}: 274.1% (from empirical trials); put on Cut Marks & Labels to see what that does -just preview with Eco.

      1. OP8QBN: this was a frustrating minor nightmare, as taking not 1.5 hours (what I had allocated) but ~3.5 hours and with a rush job
        1. OP8QFW: so causing me to {miss the whole event: the 2hr march} almost entirely! :OP8QFW
        2. OP8QI9: because I found the job actually being much harder than what it sounded, due to software for it not being smooth
          1. OP8SGE: as
            1. OP8S6M: I was in the situation ‘most/near worst: 2×2 (so 4 pages) instead takes up to 3×3 (so 9 pages) :OP8QNQ’ but none of the 3 software I had accommodated for this
            2. OP8SEB: probably more
          2. OP8SEJ: so the sequence of steps I that I found to get the job done was frighteningly many & messy: detailed thru OP6YIV
