I'm oldschool too. I prefer printed manuals or, at least, something like a printed manual.
This last attempt at converting the html to pdf gave up with another out of memory error at page 4573 :-(

Sooo close, Rui!
I finally got mine to work in Acrobat. Thanks Russian dude for the tut. Dasvidaniya.
4748 page PDF took over 2 hours to produce. No videos or enlarged images. Comes in at 111MB. Now I need to upgrade my iPad.

How much RAM does your machine has, ernia?
Did you use the exact same options that the russian tutorial shows?

What app are you using for the conversion? Acrobat or some other pdf writer? I used Acrobat 6 Professional which is by no means the latest but it seems to have done not a bad job. 7531 pages against ernia's 4748 though like his, no enlarged images or videos. My machine is nothing special, a MacPro 1,1 with 5Gb Ram.

I used Acrobat 9.
But my machine only has 4 Gb.

Not sure the difference is that great. During the conversion my free RAM ran at around 2.8 - 2.9Gb so 1Gb difference may not be that significant...unless Acrobat 9 uses a lot more resources.

So please just share the method, not the result of any conversion.

Hi Björn,

can you tell me if it is a copyright problem to give a converted pdf from one registered cinema user to another registered cinema user? Both have the right to use the help I guess?

best regards

Thank you for your understanding.

My guess is exactly that, avgas. Probably, Acrobat 9 uses many more resources :-(

Hi Rui.

I've got 8GB RAM running the latest Acrobat.

I tried to use the same settings as the Russian but I'm sure there are some inadvertent changes I made somewhere in there. I just tried pick what I thought would work best. I did try his 3-levels-deep, but only got 300 or 400 pages when I first tried it.

Exactly. Since I don't know how deep is the nesting, I turned on "Entire site".
