to copy an entire thread with all pictures and quotes to an offline area? If so - how do you do it?

Hmmmm...I know you can right click, click copy and it will copy a post, just not sure if it will copy an entire thread. Check it out and let me know!

You can do a print screen then paste it into word and make a file but you have to do each page separately. Or do Save As for each page.

There is. Ever notice on the list of threads where it shows the pages 1,2,etc. the last item is "all" Just click on "all" and the whole thread opens up in one long page. Right click and "select all". Once everything is highlighted, copy it to the clip board. To retain all the pictures, etc. I use Outlook express and create a new email and paste the thread in it. I put the thread title in the Subject area. When you close the email it saves in your "draft" folder. When you want to see it again open Outlook express and look in the Draft folder. I think I tried saving a thread in Word before but,if I remember correctly it wouldn't save the avatars or pictures is the reason I use the email form in outlook.

At the top of each thread, on the left hand side there are two options "New Reply" or "Topic Options" If you select "Topic Options," you get a menu that includes the option to "Print Topic" When the printable page comes up if you press "Ctrl A" then "Ctrl C" (this selects the page and copies it) you can paste it into a Word document ("Ctrl V" after you pull up a blank Word document), pictures and all. I just tried it and it works.

Yep Both SilverFox and HeavenlyPlaces methods work. The thread has to smaller in size. One you get a larger thread it will allow you to do the select and copy but upon pasting your system will lock up.

Thanks to all who helped.
