Since the layout has changed I have some problem printing questions and answers: the text is pressed to the left in a very narrow space causing a huge waste of space, paper and toner.

Is there a trick to get the text of the answers on a full page?

You can visit http://stackprinter.com, which is a printer-friendly static mirror of the site network.

There are also various (legal) mirrors of the site network on the whole net, including the 3-monthly archive.org data dump (which is being made public by the SE itself). Using it to print a single question is obviously overkill, but if you want to do it with many questions, selected and ordered by your own criteria...

The printer-friendliness of the page could be also increased easily by a little usercss (chrome addon here).
