Collaborate and Then Publish Your Work as a PDF

You can now save and print all the hard work you do on your wiki as an elegant PDF to share with others. If you are planning a conference, collaborate with your colleagues on your wiki to put together that killer welcome pamphlet and then print it for all the participants. Or if you’re a non-profit, build training booklets on your wiki so that your international offices can print them out as a PDF to give to their volunteers.

To turn a wiki page into a PDF, go to the arrow on that page’s “page” tab. wiki-PDFIn that dropdown, click “PDF.” You can then save your page as a PDF on your computer for later or print it out right then. You can also convert your entire wiki into a PDF. To do this, go to “Manage Wiki” and “exports.” There you can set the type of export to PDF.

Produce elegant documents with our new PDF feature and take your wiki’s good looks to the streets.

    Thanks. This is an important new feature that solves a problem which my fellow administrator and I will face down the road.

    We have been waiting for this – it is a great way for students to “save” their work in their portfolios.
    Thank you.

    This sounds fantastic, but everytime I attempt it I get an error message page. Any ideas?

    Hi Tracy,

    Does that happen when you try to turn a page into a PDF or export the entire wiki? Could you please send us a link to your wiki at help@wikispaces.com?

    Cheers,
    Debbie

    Is there a way to generate PDF’s based on tags?

    or some other method… right now it is one page or all the pages!

    Howie,

    We don’t have a way to do that yet, but it sounds like a useful option and I’ve added it to our list of future features.

    Best,
    Sarah
