Notice. New forum software under development. It's going to miss a few functions and look a bit ugly for a while, but I'm working on it full time now as the old forum was too unstable. Couple days, all good. If you notice any issues, please contact me.

Hi All,

I'm wondering if someone on the forum here has figured out a way to save an entire thread into a single document?

I'm looking to build myself a Mad style inverter over Xmas and ideally I would like to save the whole Inverter PCBs thread into a PDF that I can read without wifi and search the whole document.

I can put this on my to do list if you like. Would be fairly straight forward, and only available to members.

People say 2020 is a terrible year, with the bush fires, COVID 19, and riots. But I see it as the year we woke up to ourselves.

Yes Glenn,

That would be great, I was thinking exactly the same recently .

Also , if we get an enquiry, say, from a newbie ,we could remember the thread ,or parts of it pertaining to their enquiry ,and direct them to the whole thread-one came up yesterday ,a newbie enquiring about wind genius and someone directed him to the F &P washing machine motor.  He could have had a whole thread on several of the projects you and most of us have done.

Goes for installing solar also
But the inverter thread that Ryan was talking about would open up a lot of interest, in just one continuous story ,parts, and "how-to" make it.  Testing could be another thread ..

Thanks again Glenn for your dedication to this world -read forum .

EASY

Select every thing on page with CTL-A

Post into a word document.

Select any other web browser pages, and past into the word document.

Document will likely have ugly http:// links etc

Tidy these up with  CTL-A  ALT-SHFT9

Save as word doc.

Convert to some other format - like PDF if desire.
