Don't think there was ever a button/function to do that. Jamanda's C&P the whole lot into Word is prolly the best bet then.

There was a PDF option - and I've just turned it back on. However, it shouldn't be relied upon - I *think* it generates buggy Postscript.

IMHO the PDF option isn't at all useful and should remain off.

It does seem a bit pointless to me really. email and print are fair enough but if pdf doesn't actually work properly then it's useless.

This is where I think I'll end up.

Thanks. Didn't mean to be a pain.

The email option seems similarly pointless to me. I don't see how copy-pasting an email address into the form that pops up is any more labour-saving that copy-pasting an article URL into an email.

I can see the value of print though. I'd prefer to ditch the icon and simply have something like 'print this article' or somesuch where the icon goes.

Yep - I'm sure the only one I ever used is print, but I have used that a few times. Same on recipes.

Sorry, I hadn't realized what the email option did. Agree that it's useless.

Print makes sense. I could print it onna bit of paper, or to a file, I could edit.

Thanks.
