Say I have played with my Google Maps directions and gotten to the point that they look good and I'm ready to print. What is a good procedure for doing that, retaining control over formatting?

The best I've found so far for this is the Firefox Add-on "Print Edit." It's better than the default print -- I can get rid of graphics, for example -- but it doesn't give me as much control as I'd like.

Would prefer Firefox if possible, but I'm willing to use a different browser if that helps.

    What "control" do you need?

  • @NicolasRaoul - Thank you for asking. I would like to be able to do some reformatting. With Print Edit, I have learned to remove graphics such as left-turn arrows, which is nice because it saves toner. But sometimes Google Maps inserts weird extra steps and I find it tedious to remove little bits and pieces with Print Edit. Also, I would like to reformat the mileage information Google Maps provides. Those are examples. Nov 24, 2016 at 18:59

I tweaked my Print Edit procedure, and in the Preview step, I increased the zoom to 150%. Looks great!
