printable help file?
« on: October 25, 2006, 05:23:20 PM »
Is the documentation available in a format other than html?

Sometimes I like to print out a small section to read (say while getting ready for sleep - how sick is that) and it can be pretty hard to print out info from the help file.

Is a pdf of the help available?  Something where you could print out a couple pages at a time.

I guess somehow I could convert the whole documentation to a txt file or something and then print what I want but someone must have a better idea than this.

Well, you can always use your browser to print the documentation.  Using the Print Preview feature, you could figure out which pages you wanted to print.

You could also convert it to another format.  Just google for "convert html pdf" (add in any other extensions you want, like "doc" or "txt" or "rtf").  There are tons of converters out there.  Here's one: http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfcreator

On that same subject, if you're going to convert to PDF, I highly recommend FoxIt Reader as a replacement for Adobe Acrobat.  Smaller, much more lightweight, loads instantly, and has thus far performed flawlessly for me: http://www.foxitsoftware.com

FoxIt also has a PDF creator (converter).
