Do you find the text within AUSOM News too small on your iPad? Reading it within Safari or if you are reading it within the Books app you will initially be faced with a full page with text that may be too small.
One way of enlarging the area within most of the 2-column articles is to double-tap on the area you would like to expand.
In the image above double-tap in the area circled results in the image below.
A double-tap on the ‘expanded’ screen will take you back to a full-page view.
If the double-tap method does not work you may need to place two fingers on the screen near each other. Spread them apart to zoom in, or move them toward each other to zoom out.
Open your PDF with Preview on the Mac and display Thumbnails.
Select the pages you want by holding down the Command-key and click each of the page thumbnails.
When you then press Command-P or choose File > Print. The print window will show “Selected Page(s) in Sidebar” option.
