Menu proxy on Masterpage-can I get a Print button?[FIXED]

Postby M33R4 on Wed May 12, 2021 9:28 am

My project has 2 targets:
    HTML5
    PDF

My Masterpage has a Menu Proxy with settings "Context-sensitive" and "Include children" only.
This menu displays only the children.
Currently, the User can only print one child at a time - i.e. what is displayed on their current screen view.
What I would like to offer the User is the facility to print all of the children at once (in a PDF format preferably) with one click of a button.
How can I make that possible please :?:

In HTML5 targets, the browser can only print the current page.

If you want it available as a PDF, then you'd need to create all that manually - e.g. create a PDF target in Flare, add the built output PDF to your content folder, and then include a link to the PDF from your topic.

Thanks Dave - that is what I will do :)
