One-touch Print function - print all sub-topics in TOC

Postby M33R4 on Tue Mar 16, 2021 2:56 am

My TOC is made up of a topic header, under which I have sub-topics.
I currently have the print functionality/icon on each topic page which allows the user to print just that page. However, I also wish to give the user the ability to print all the sub-topics in one click. Is that possible please :?:

Thanks.

I suspect you'd have to provide a separate PDF that contains all the sub-topics if you want to be able to allow the user to print the whole section. I could be wrong, but I don't think so.

Pardon my ignorance, but how can I provide the separate PDF within my online output please?

Thanks.

How do I get a print button on each page to print just that page, please? I have quite a lot of topics and hope that I don't need a toc for each one separately...

The user should be able to print successfully from their browser.

Use the Print button on the topic toolbar.

It's in Flare's help: https://help.madcapsoftware.com/flare20 ... ight=print

Although you can print via the browser, the toolbar Print button works better because it will expand drop downs, togglers, etc.
