Can guides be printed? Tried to print the guide for the .96" RGB oled with SD card and it previewed as a mess. Using Firefox browser

Which guide do you mean? And what do you mean by mess?

The Guide I wanted to print was for the .96" RGB oled breakout board with the attached SD card. When I mean "a mess", I was previewing the doc in the Print option from the Firefox menu. The preview showed few images and many were replaced with the dice icon. Could be I do not understand newer versions of Firefox. There used to be an option in the print dialog that let you "simplify" the doc. I think it had something to do with forms. But I am somewhat of a rookie and I could be wrong.
I have saved the guide and can view it online at my leisure but I do not seem to know how to get it to format correctly for printing. I know it is old school but there is still some utility in paper.

The best way to print a guide is to download the PDF version. You should find a link for that on the lower left side of the screen.
