All GTS files are intended for customer printout for easy reference. If you encounter difficulties, consider the following.

General information is usually in paragraph format and should wrap when printed. Most product lists are columnar or tabular. The column listings should wrap but may be lengthy. To more compact view on screen or in printout try selecting from you WEB browser "View, Text size, Smaller (or Smallest)". This will present more copy per page. Also, more copy per page will be printed by selecting "File, Page setup, Margins" and reducing the four margins. If the tables do not print full width (the right edge is lost), select "File, Page setup, Landscape" to provide wider paper.

If combining these layout changes does not result in useful reference copies, let us know.
