using either firefox or ie on a windows xp workstation, i've tried to print out the full entries for several questions. however, any entry that was longer than could be accommodated by one side of a sheet of paper was truncated, and if i duplexed the job, the first line(s?) of the entry were missing from the top of the second page.

i actually reported such a bug several months ago -- directly to the management, before i had an account and could actually post questions -- and thought it had been fixed. but it seems to have resurfaced.

as keeper of the bugs list for the ams-latex macro/style collection, full documentation of bug reports is important to me. having a "local" copy is essential, either paper or electronic, although a link will be checked later during the implementation. i will probably end up cutting and pasting the entire content of the relevant questions, but that surely isn't the best or easiest approach. is there a better way that i'm just overlooking?

I recommend using StackPrinter for printing duties:

http://stackprinter.appspot.com/

This was built using our API at

http://stackapps.com

and it was a contest winner too!

  • Works great, but could we have some link to it on the site? Or at least mention it in the FAQs? – Stephen Jan 15 '12 at 18:08

You could also use Paulo Cereda's TeXPrinter, which produces PDF or LaTeX output. He wrote a blog entry about it.

  • very nice indeed, but is it running somewhere on the net? (i'm prohibited from installing any software on the system from which i usually read tex.sx. am also strongly discouraged from downloading photos or music either.) – barbara beeton Jan 15 '12 at 15:07

    @barbarabeeton: I'm afraid it runs locally only. But it doesn't require installation, you just need to have the proper Java runtime environment (?) installed. – doncherry Jan 15 '12 at 15:23
