Printing Questions

Printing Questions

Printing Questions

1. I would like to have my inputs highlighted.  This way, if someone were to use my workbook, it would be very easy for him to see what values may need changed for his design.  However, I do not want the shading to print.  A shaded area would make no sense to our customer and it looks unprofessional.

How do I create a highlighted input that will not print?

2. The first page of my workbook is a series of inputs and radio buttons that are not a part of our printed document.  It's easy enough to tell the computer to print pages 2 through #, but the page count on the header then says "Page 2 of ##" wich is incorrect to our customer.  

How do I start the page count at "1" even if it is the second page?

RE: Printing Questions

Hide page 1 (collapsed region) after setting all the inputs and before printing?

RE: Printing Questions

Thanks for the help, but this will not work in my application.  Not all of the inputs are in the beginning.  And some inputs I want to have printed and others I do not.  

My ultimate goal would be to write a VBA macro that has 2 print options.  One option would be for the customer printout and the other option would be for office use.  I'm looking into using toggle buttons to do this.  I'm not sure if that's doable in Mathcad.

Any help, input, or ideas are greatly appreciated.
