Printing scrambles of 4x4-7x7

Hi all, Printing scrambles of 4x4-7x7 is a pain to get it right. Do you have a clear procedure on how to get all scrambles on one page or two correctly and easily? Should we change the scramble program to improve printing? Thanks, Ron

Another thing I would like if scramblers were being modified. 1. Easy way to save off scrambles. Normally I have to go in and comment out the javascript because if I save 5 scrambles and open that, 5 new ones will get generated above it. This could be as simple as having a parm in URL of "scramble" and if that's not there, then the javascript won't run. 2. A blank area where I can enter in information to be on the printout. This is usually round and group # information.

For 1.: Just print the page into a PDF file instead of saving the HTML file (you can use "FreePDF" if you are on Windows. Linux and Mac can do this natively)

I print to PDF on my mac for all scrambles besides 3x3x3. For 3x3x3 I use windows in parallels and [url=http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfcreator/:1uwd8tly]pdfcreator[/url:1uwd8tly].

Yeah, I use CutePDF to print scrambles. With respect to something to generate multiple scrambles at once, I hacked one together a while ago, but never finished (scramblers are out of date now, too): http://koii.cubingusa.com/lib/scrambles ... mbles.html I've heard of one other person who was working on something similar but nicer... not sure where that is at though.

I've made some XSLT and a Xalan plugin that uses scramble plugins from CCT to generate a PDF with scrambles: [url:3r3zpudc]http://cubing.dk/scrambles.pdf[/url:3r3zpudc] The clock image was just a quick and very dirty implementation I made that does not scale at the moment.
