    Minimise the threads and do a screen dump. Just need good eyes.

    Good question. I did that exercise on a Somersoft thread on the Moreton Bay Area a while back. Being from Sydney, I had no idea on the area, the thread was a couple of pages long, I printed it out. The thread talked all about what was going on with the Costco etc in North Lakes, and talked about Mango Hill, Kippa Ring and all the way to the bay. On paper I was able to highlight the locations that were talked about, piece together the information in a more useful way making extra written notes and do further research looking up the bits that piqued a real interest. Worked for me to get a real good feel of the area.

    I have been hand writing information from the screen on my phone (as I don't have a computer and printer).

    Is there a better way?

    Just read things on your phone?

    Use something like Trello or Evernote to save links to threads you want to be able to bookmark and locate again?

    mmm, I'm wanting to do something like @Gockie 's referring to. The 150+ pages some of the threads are getting to is getting a big job. I like to scribble, highlight and take notes beside the posts. My head is turning inside out piecing together the great info on threads! :oops:

    Select all and copy and paste into a Word doc. Pain the butt for multiple pages but itll be readable.

    I'll try, but could get testing with threads that are more than 50 pages, and getting longer.....

    yeah, searching for it. am currently saving to PDF to print off. Each page of the thread requires an average of 7 print pages - will require a few packs of printing paper for a 130 page thread :eek:

    Not sure you can print due copyright infringements.

    Any printing needs to go via my solicitor first.

    Thanks in advance.

    It's going to require custom development work to make it happen.

    It's on my todo list - but it's not a high priority right now.
