PDF Printer-friendly version?

Sun 26 May 2019, 23:18

Hi, sorry if this is in the wrong place, or I've missed this information somewhere. Just downloaded my PDF, and flicking through it I notice that it's very dark, not that printer friendly - I hate using PDFs on my laptop as I have trouble with my eyes, and I typically print them out for my own use; so I was just wondering if there might be plans to make the PDF a little more printer friendly?

You can remove the background layer and still keep the text. It's not a perfect solution, but it's quick to do and economic for the printer.

The problem I am seeing with printing this without the background is that some of the graphics are included in this. I always appreciate it when a publisher gives us access to the layers but it would be nice to be able to remove the background without losing things like the ship maps and such. Also I hope that they don't use this layout in the book because it seems to waste so much space. Don't get me wrong, the art is nice and it can be a problem if a book is just walls of text, but this quickstart feels like it has been spread over more pages than it needed to.

I'd love a printer-friendly stripped down version as well.

The art is nice and the background adds to the feel while reading the PDF, but having to print off 168 pages of it from any machine seems to be a bit excessive. 

The printer-friendly version could just contain the rules, maps and characters from Chariots and it would serve just fine for those of who like hardcopies, or have eye problems like cyrodilicbrandy and myself.

Woohoo, thank you! 
For now, I'm just taking reading through everything nice and slowly so I don't strain myself. :P

I just logged in to ask the very question in the original post of the thread. Since it's been asked and answered, I'll just chime in with another vote for a printer-friendly PDF. My printer thanks you. :D

A printer friendly character sheet and condensed rules would be great.
