Is it possible to download the documentation in a printer friendly format. I can make pdfs of individual pages but it wastes much space and ink and is time consuming. I have tried a couple of tools and am still searching for something that will do a better job. It would be so much easier if it was made available by Unreal. Perhaps it is and I have not found it?
I like to read the documentation but I do not want to be tied to my computer while doing so. Also, it is a health and safety issue for my poor eyes!
Any advice on this is appreciated. Someone elsewhere suggested Adobe Acrobat for download of multiple levels of a website?
No, we do not produce printable documentation at this time. It is an idea that comes up periodically, but tends to get punted for a variety of reasons.
If you were so inclined, I suppose you could use a web crawler and scrape the pages into a printable format.
Thanks for the question!
I am very curious to know why this gets kicked around. Obviously, documentation changes with time but something is better than nothing. I have crawled your site but it still takes effort to compile and collate nicely. Why am I and others doing this when you make it so publicly available - it is such a waste of everyones time.
Once you have decided to give away the engine and the source code then why would you not give away the documentation. It makes no sense.
Just to be clear, the documentation is freely available here: Unreal Engine 5.1 Documentation | Unreal Engine 5.1 Documentation
We don’t produce the documentation in a directly printable format - there isn’t a master .pdf file buried in one of the github directories, or somewhere else.
I’m sorry this doesn’t make sense for your current situation. I’ve noted your request, and will file an internal bug for consideration.
Man this is tool bad. I appreciate the service you provide but I like to relax read sometimes.
