    Would love to try to work this up, but for the last week or so nothing will print using the print button and the Jolie system, anyone else having trouble getting patterns to print?

      I had problems but they were taken care of as I explained in a message above yours… You can also copy and paste into MS Word and then print it from there. Or just highlight the text and then click on PRINT. On the printer menu click on selection for the highlighted area and then print. If you cannot use Joliprint. This might be another way! I hope it works for you!

        Thanks for your reply, ended up being a problem with Adobe Reader, problem solved 🙂

    I had much trouble, even downloading the file. But in Google Crome it was taken care of. I have no trouble since. It is a new free browser from Google. Glad I have it now. 🙂 Have customized it and it works perfect now.

    You can never understand how we appreciate these patterns. Some of us are living on Social Security with a very limited income. Thaks again.

    it’s too bad that it’s not easy to print your free patterns especially for those of use who have limited knowledge of computers. Can’t you find a way to make it easier?

      There is link at the bottom of each post that says “Download/Print” with a little picture of a printer next to it. Clicking on it should allow you to print without all the excess images.
