How to Print Notes

I am not gonna explain the process of printing, like how to actually print notes, or anything of that sort.

Yesterday, I had mentioned I was going to print notes at home only. So this post will contain the size of the font, the correct type of font, paper's GSM, printer settings, and much more.

I chose to print on both the sides. Though printer settings let you choose the option 'print on both sides', it is a painstaking task. So, I wrote odd numbers like 1, 3, 5, 7, and so on, in the custom page number setting. I printed the whole bundle of odd numbers.
Then, I placed the pages in ascending order, like 1 on top of 3, 3 on top of 5, and so on. I placed the bundle in the printer, and typed 2, 4, 6, 8... in the custom settings.
So, that's how I got prints on both the sides.

In the word document, choose font size 16. (In the earlier unedited post, I had mentioned it to be between 18-20, but I had roughly written that, and I apologize.) The font type doesn't matter. Just see to it that the font is clear enough.

I had asked my dad to get the packet of the most light-weighted printing papers. I don't know why, but I wanted light papers, instead of the heavy ones. Using heavy ones feel like we're studying some really heavy stuff, and we don't get that feel, you know?

I also added Footer. It's annoying to figure out the page numbers in the footer's absence, especially if you're printing at home. So I added a footer for easier arrangement of papers.


Also, there's a small tip, here. After every topic/question, put three stars, and then press enter; a dotted line like this will automatically be updated, by the magician MS Word.
This is beneficial, as you can search through the pages easily. All you have to do is search for the dotted lines, and read the topics below them.

The basic aim of this style of printing is to have a good, readable matter for studying.

P.S. Stay tuned for the post 'How to Study from Printed Notes', which I shall post tomorrow, or day after.
