This page provides information about displaying and printing content on HCUP-US.
 
Question
1. Issues with viewing HCUP-US in Internet Explorer (IE).
2. How do I print only part of a document from HCUP-US?
 
1. Issues viewing HCUP-US in Internet Explorer (IE)
If you are using Internet Explorer as your browser for viewing HCUP-US, Compatibility View settings may cause distorted page headers, navigation menus, images, and text placement. Compatibility View should be disabled for optimal viewing. Compatibility View settings are controlled within the Tools menu. The Tools menu is accessed from the IE menu bar, or from the gear icon in the upper right corner of the browser.

To turn off Compatibility View,
  1. Go to Tools > Compatibility View settings.
  2. Remove ahrq.gov from "Websites you've added to Compatibility View" if it appears in the list.
  3. If you are still having display issues, you may need to deselect "Display intranet sites in Compatibility View." Note: this may impact how you view pages on other sites.
2. Printing long documents or tables
When viewing a long document or table of information, most browsers will allow you to select and print the section in which you're interested, instead of printing all pages.

After selecting the desired portion of the document, launch the Print dialog and, instead of choosing a range of pages to print, locate and choose an option labeled "Selection" or a similar term.

NOTE: Layout and user prompts will differ between browsers and may change over time, but "P" is the print command in most browsers (Ctrl+P in Windows™-based browsers; ⌘+P in Mac/Apple-based browsers).

In the Print dialog for many browsers, the option to print only the current selection is visible by default, usually associated with options to print certain pages or range of pages. In other browsers, you may need to explore additional settings to locate the option for printing only the current selection. For example,

  • Windows: In IE and Firefox, the "Print range" area of the Print dialog offers options for All, Pages from/to, and Selection; however, in Chrome you may need to request "More settings" to see the Selection only option.
  • Mac: You may need to use the "Services" menu to access features for printing the current selection.
