Below is some helpful information, tips, and tricks to get Frettable sheet music printed beautifully from all of the major web browsers. To print, navigate to the sheet music transcription and click the "Print PDF" button or in your web browser's toolbar click File > Print to view the print options menu. From this menu you can save as a PDF file, print on your local printer, and configure how the sheet music will look on the page.
Each web browser is different, so we went ahead and found the settings that make Frettable sheet music look great on your preferred browser. Please select your browser below:
There isn't much to tweak for Google Chrome. Most importantly, ensure that "Background graphics" is checked and "Headers and footers" is unchecked.
There isn't much to tweak for Safari. Most importantly, ensure that "Print backgrounds" is checked and "Print headers and footers" is unchecked.
Firefox is a little trickier to configure due to scaling issues. Most importantly, ensure that "Ignore Scaling and Shrink to Fit Page Width" is unchecked, "Print Background Colors" is checked, and "Print Background Images" is also checked.
For the "Scale" setting, we found that 60% looks good for portrait orientation and 80% looks good for landscape orientation.
Most importantly, you will need to adjust the scale to get the sheet music to fit the width of the page without being cut off. Edge's automatic "Shrink to fit" does not work properly so you will need to adjust manually. We found that a scale setting of 50% looks good for portrait orientation and 75% looks good for landscape orientation.
