Print the calendar

The interactive and resizable nature of the PocketSmith calendar, unfortunately, means that printing may not look good. This is because most browsers strip away a lot of the style information when preparing a document for printing. These styles are responsible for rendering the calendar and events.
We have a couple of solutions below that involve using browser extensions for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. We think this is better than the browser's native print feature as it retains all the elements as you see them.

Google Chrome

Install an extension for your browser called Awesome Screenshot. This allows you to snap a screenshot and print the interface exactly as you see it.

You can find the extension in the Chrome Web Store:  Awesome Screenshot

To print the calendar once Awesome Screenshot is installed, follow the steps below:

Go to Forecast > Calendar
Click the Awesome Screenshot icon in the top-right of Chrome and elect Capture entire page

Once the screenshot is completed, click Done

Click the print icon

Adjust your print options if needed and then click Print


The resulting print will be exactly what's on screen. Feel free to try some of the other options available in the capture menu, e.g. 'Capture selected area', so see if they suit you better.

Mozilla Firefox

Install an extension for your browser called Capture and Print

You can find the extension in the Firefox addon directory:  Capture & Print

When it's installed and activated, you'll see an icon for Capture and Print on the top right of your browser.
Clicking it turns your screen yellow, indicating the printable area. Your mouse pointer will be a crosshairs icon.
Drag the pointer over the area you want to print. When you're done, you will be presented with a printable page of the area.
Print the document by going to the File > Print menu.
