No more "printer friendly" links.... 8-(

So, early i could see "printer friendly version" link at the top of each news page, but now i missed.
Is there a new feature of CityDesk, or someone there clear check button "[ ] Insert printer-friendly link with handler", and this appkied to entire site?
But I don't like print these printer-unfriendly web pages, where 50% and more page area is white space under menues/banners/etc.

Thank you.

Well, I think Joel removed them for one reason:

In his recent posting he wrote, he'll publish his second book with exactly these articles. So, maybe it should boost the sales of the book. I mean, you call still print it, but due to a lot "white space" you lose a few pages.

Printer friendly links are still there, on every article. Not sure what you're talking about, here.

Of course, everyone knows that with CSS, there is no NEED for "printer- friendly links".
