Reduced Instructable Pages! Answered

We need to be able as a community reduce the amount of pages each project uses. This kind of goes against the stub philosophy, but imagine if you could reduce an Instructable to a single page or even multiple projects per page. If not 1, why not 2, or 3? I see some projects that are overwhelming with information at times. This could also add even more features such as un-selecting the steps that you don't need and poof, gone! There is also the potential for yet more ad views (which means everyone wins) with this service | 1. ads on the service page, 2. ads on the finished page.

<bleh>I've been considering this for years in all documentation that I do, how to reduce pages. However, this will be impossible without the staff at Instructables support and willing to adapt and grow. I also know paper is not the issue it used to be, but that isn't exactly the point I'm trying to reach; for instance sometimes more is really too more. Also, I know I'm new but focusing on that goes against my belief in working agile. Hi everyone!</bleh>

Are you talking about the PDF downloads?

It is very rare for any step-by-step project to be able to do without one of the steps.

Maybe, if you're just trying to reduce the number of pages in a printout, you should just choose the option for smaller images. It might seem a good idea to reduce the font size, but a large block of small text can be very hard to read while you are trying to follow along with hands full of tools or covered in glue.

On COULD make the print small enough so that you'd need a full page magnifier to read it :-D
