wordpad printing problems

I just addon a extention shooter and I like it. The only problem is I can't print the whole page on wordpad. I go to the preview of the page and it cuts off. I try the page and the paint prints to small.

try highlighting (rather, selecting) all of it and then hit Ctrl+p (Control and p), and select the option in print range that says "selection" to print only what you have selected, and click print again.

I need to have the part of the images on it too in order to print it.

highlight the image too. Click page setup and select what it is you want. It may very well be you have too much on a single sheet of paper.

Also, on wordpad I want the font size bigger. I can't highlight on wordpad I get lines like a crop. How do I fix that? Also, when I try to change the font on print preview its small. I print it the print was small. I can't change the default print.
I forgot to add, I paste something from a web. That's the problem I'm having as highlighting.

I don't mean use the highlighter, I mean left (make sure its actually left) click near what you want to print and hold down, dragging it over everything you want to print. Besides that;

If the thing you are downloading is just an image, try saving it to your computer first, and then clicking "picture" to load it to wordpad. To make the font bigger, change the font size to a much more noticeable font like 14 after selecting which words you want to change. If the font is in the picture, you cannot change it, but you may be able to make the picture itself bigger by clicking the middle of it, grabbing on to one of the sides, and pulling it outto your desired size. if it looks distorted, pull it out the other way as well.

This must be a serious project if you are still worried about it even now

I may not entirely be sure what is going on, perhaps the image from the web is not a good one? Because I just pulled your image of your cat off of this site and put it on word pad just fine, with words of different font all over the place. I uploaded what I did so you can see it. Try a different picture maybe?
