how to print or extract a long thread


After reading and searching and reading and ... I found a very ... long ... thread ... that contains the answers I've sought. Is there some easy way to get the entire thread as one page so that I might SaveAs or PrintToFile and keep those details?

I know that I can show NN posts, SaveAs, next page, repeat, but that is such a chore. Once done, I still need to collect all of the parts into the correct order etc.

There ought to be a way...

Thanks in Advance,
~~~ 8d;-/ Dan

The most "printable" version of a thread can be found at: Thread Tools -> Show Printable Version

When I've tried that on a really REALLY large thread, I did not get all of it. LQ still broke it into sections.

... or did I screw it up somehow?

Thanks,

For very long threads there is still a limit, so you may need to print it in chunks.
