  • How do I jump to a specific section of the paper? Where is the section navigation bar/table of contents?
  • For desktop readers, there are several ways to jump between sections in the e-Newspaper viewer. One way is to click or tap the “Section List” button located in the right corner of the top bar.

    This will open the “Section List” window. From there, tap or click any of the labeled thumbnail images to go to the first page of that section.

    Another way to navigate is to click or tap the “Pages” tab at the bottom of the screen to open the Page Browser.

    Within the “Pages” tab, you’ll see a section navigation bar. Click the left and right arrows to horizontally scroll through the labels to find your desired section, then click to select. You can also navigate individual stories and find them in the “Articles” tab next to the “Pages” tab.

    If visiting our e-Newspaper on a tablet or smartphone, tap the “Menu” icon to open the menu, then tap the “Sections” bar to expand the list of section names.

    Tap the name of your desired section to navigate to that part of the e-Newspaper issue.

  • How do I clip a portion of a page?
  • On desktop computers, click the “Create Clipping” icon that looks like a pair of scissors in the top bar of the e-Newspaper viewer.

    The first time you use the tool, a window will display with instructions on how it works (there is a check box that allows you to hide the window on subsequent clicks). Click the OK button to close the pop-up window.

    Click and drag your cursor to select the area of the page you wish to clip. To move the clipping box, click, hold and drag the box where you desire. To resize it, move your cursor to the lower right corner of the clipping box, then click, hold and drag to reshape it.

    On the bottom right corner of the clipping box, you will find three buttons. The “X” button exits clipping mode and returns you to the e-Newspaper viewer. The middle button, with the refresh icon, allows you to redraw your selection. The third button, with the checkmark icon, confirms your selection. Once you confirm your clipping, a “Clipping Options” modal window will display giving you the ability to preview, save, print or share the image.

    Here are some pointers about using the clipping tool:
    • It only works on the actual news pages. You can’t clip if you are viewing in the “Article View” mode. You can print entire articles, however, when in “Article View.”
    • It works best if you are in “Page Fill” viewing mode.
    • You can make clippings in “Page Fit” mode, but If you try to zoom in to clip something, it might skew the image.

  • How do I zoom in?
  • There are several ways to magnify content on a page:

    On desktop:
    • Use the spread and pinch gestures on your laptop’s trackpad (if available) to zoom in and out.
    • Double click on the area you’d like to zoom into.
    • Use the magnification slider in the top bar of the e-Newspaper viewer.
    On tablet and smartphones:
    • Double tap on the area you’d like to zoom into; double tap again to zoom out.
    • Tap once to read an article in plain-text mode.
    • Pinch and spread to zoom in and out.
    Remember: If you want to make a clipping, it is best to do it in “Page Fill” mode because zooming in while you’re in “Page Fit” mode, might not give you the desired clipping.

  • How do I view the e-Newspaper archive?
  • Desktop users can view a past edition of the paper from the 30-day archive, by clicking on the icon that looks like a file cabinet. (If you hover over it with your mouse, it says “Archives.”) That will give you access to past editions. You can also access past issues by clicking on the menu icon with the three lines. Then click on "Archive" to see the available past editions.

    Tablet and smartphone users can access the 30-day archive by tapping the Menu icon to open the menu list, then selecting the “Archive” label.
