For craftlady64 - I hope this will help for copying for you. I see you left the query in January so I am 4 months late. When the whole set of instructions does not copy, I go to the picture I need, right click on it, select copy, then go back to the instructions already copied and right click again and select paste. Sometimes the pictures show up squished on the original copy, so I right click and copy, then without moving from that spot, right click and paste. The picture will possibly be huge and you just need to go to the corner and downsize it. There should be a square in each of the corners and when your mouse goes there it changes to an arrow, then you can resize the picture.

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF ANYONE CAN TELL ME HOW TO PRINT THIS PATTERN AND GET THE PICTURES WITH IT. ALL I GOT WERE THE INSTRUCTIONS, AND NONE OF THE MEASURING GUIDES(PICTURES). I CLICKED ON PRINT, AND NOTHING HAPPENED.
