◄ Back to Miscellaneous  The survey has concluded. Here are the results!


  • Problem: PDF book rendering has been "ŧurned off for a short term in September 2017" but never brought back. It was an useful feature.
  • Who would benefit: Anynone wanting to collect pages into a book and then download PDF for printing.
  • Proposed solution: Get PDF book rendering back to life. We know it's doable. Maybe it's a lot work, but it would be so nice to have this feature back!

Discussion

Wikisource has some relevant tools, automatically making PDFs but also EPUBs etc. out of any page and any source text. For groups of pages, there's Creator, which seems to be down but was being worked on in 2019 (clarification welcome. Could you use that, Tchoř? HLHJ (talk) 02:49, 20 December 2020 (UTC)
