It'll let you print as far as I can see, but unfortunately not to file.

this is actually done in your printer driver and not thru the browser/plugin, on mac os x printing to a pdf is system-wide and available anywhere you can print. Not sure about windows/linux, you may have to install a dummy pdf driver but i'll leave that for a windows pro to answer.

Mac and Linux are using the same print subsystem. It is called CUPS.
I run Ubuntu and it should be system-wide. I print to file webpages all the time. But this is a flash based issue I believe.

well it works in os x, are you using the print function of the browser or the one within the flash plugin?

I know it's called CUPS. :D Printing through the browser I only get the first two pages no matter what I set them on. I ain't joining Issuu just to download this pdf. I'll bookmark Denny's link and access it there, which is just as easy as opening a file.

If you install CUPS-PDF then you can print everything to the pdf format.
If you need any help with it, let me know.

Sorry about talking off topic.

Not off topic AFAIC. Thanks for the tip I installed cups-pdf but will only print what's displayed and not page ranges. So I have a bunch of pdf's potentially. Any suggestions?

Really good resource Denny...I use hopunion on a regular basis.

This new booklet is even more detailed. I plan to print it for a handy go to guide.

Thanks for the tip!

Thanks for the link Denny!  I joined Issuu and dl'd the pdf to my phone.  This  is the kind of resource that is nice to have no matter where you are.

Euge, or anyone else for that matter,  if you want a copy pm me and I'll email you the pdf.

edited so it makes sense. It never pays to try and fire off a fast post just before a meeting!

I think it has to do with the "book presentation".
You could use tool like pdftk to add all the pages together.
I think Ubuntu has it in the repository.

To my knowledge it is command line tool only.
