Export to PDF option in WebHelp

Hi,

I am trying to figure out a way to generate a PDF file for a WebHelp page. This PDF should be generated on-the-fly from the help page by clicking an icon or link on the page.
I did not find any option or setting to provide this capability in WebHelp.

Most of the help centers provide such "Export to PDF" option.

If this feature is already available in the product, then can you please guide me to configure it?
If not, then can you please consider this as a new feature request?

For your context, we are using XML Editor/Author for authoring our documentation, and WebHelp as the publishing system.

Thanks.
Rahul

Hi rkulkarni,

There is no "export to PDF" option available in the current implementation of WebHelp.
However, we already have an improvement request to add the possibility to export a page to PDF, logged in our internal tracking system, so I added your vote for this feature.
Most probably this will be implemented in a future version of oXygen. We will update this thread when this will happen.

Regards,
Costin

Hi Costin,

Thanks for the quick revert.
"Export to PDF" is a very handy feature and highly requested by users of help systems.

It'll be great to see it coming in a near release.

Thanks again.
