Authors or co-authors will typically choose to organize their authoring spaces into sub-directories. To generate a PDF containing all problems in an entire directory or sub-directory, follow the steps below:

  1. First, select one of the problems to view in the sub-directory to be printed.

  2. Click Print in the Functions menu if using the Inline menu, or the PRT buttom on the Remote Control.

  3. Select the option to print `Selected Problems' from current subdirectory.'

  4. Optionally, choose to print with Answers. You can choose to print with either the default two column output or with one column.

  5. Click the Next button.

  6. On the next screen, select which problems you want to print by either clicking on one of the Select buttons or individually checking which problems you want to select.

  7. Click the Next button.

  8. As long as there were no errors in any of the problems, you should now see a link to a PDF file that you can download and view.

If an error occurs with just one of the problems then printing of all selected problems in the sub-directory will fail. LON-CAPA will make a guess at which problem(s) had errors. You will need to troubleshoot and fix those problems before the entire directory can be printed. Information about common print errors is available at Help.
