The plugin currently responsible for the generation of PDF documents is not compatible with many of the dokuwiki features we are using. A more elegant solution to allow users to have nice print versions of our wiki is to provide a decent print stylesheet. This will make PDF rendering obsolete. (Of course, people can still save a print-formatted document to PDF if they want to.)

Attached find the pdf of the page: Check page 3. Note two things: - HTML is printed as-is - HTML character codes aren't interpreted (i.e., "cfg = [];" instead of "cfg = [];") I assume this is a bug with mediawiki, but I've never worked with it so I can't say for sure. Maybe fiddle with some settings? Update mediawiki? Anyway, this is an awesome functionality, so if it can be made to work better, that would be grand. Thanks -

Hi Elli, yes that's right; it's a known issue and actually one of the main reasons we decided to move to a decent print stylesheet which will replace the PDF export function. I have just started work again on the print stylesheet, and I expect it to be finished within a week or two.

Fixed for now. Known issue: SVG figures do not scale yet very well. Let's discuss during the meeeting whether I should remove the PDF functionality.

I closed all the bugs that were in the status RESOLVED. This includes the ones that we just discussed in the weekly fieldtrip meeting, but also the bugs that we did not discuss.
