How to print a Tune page


Printing a web page is quite simple if you use a modern browser, running on any operating system installed on a decent computer. However, if you only want to print the scores contained in a web page then the site that publishes them must implement some strategy to make this possible. Here at the TTA we have basically two types of pages:

  1. Tune information pages: they contain a summary sheet of all the properties of the Tune and the score for the tune itself.
  2. Tune annotations pages: they contain annotation, comments, anecdotes and semantic links to alternative titles, alleged composers and/or geographical provenance, of the same tune.


If you send a Tune information page to a printer you get the printing of only the score
If you send a Tune annotation page to a printer, you will get the score complete with annotation, comments, anecdotes and alternative titles, alleged composers and/or geographical provenance, of the same tune.

TTA has two or three methods for printing:

  1. Using the print commands of your browser or PC (e.g. CTRL+P)
  2. Use the "Print page" command on the left side of the Sidebar.

The latter option allows you to choose the printing options in a popup before printing.
