It should then give you the entire highlighted content - I’m on Chrome and if I just right click and print I get the first page only, but highlighting beforehand gives all the content. You might need to play with scaling before printing.

Thanks very much Gabriela.  It works like a charm with Chrome, though 
not (at all) with Firefox.

I tried saving or printing the page that showed up in my browser (Firefox; GoogleChrome) in various ways.  The result always seems to get truncated at a single page, with the bulk of the document omitted.  (The document is also somewhat messed up in other ways.)
