Release Notes for Socialtext 2.11: Export to Word and PDF
Socialtext is pleased to announce the ability to export wiki pages to both MS Word and PDF formats. This makes it possible to author documents collaboratively in the wiki, and then to publish for broader audiences.
Export a Single Page to Word or PDF
The Tools menu at the top of the sidebar on each page has new items 'Export as PDF' and 'Export as Word'. Left-clicking on those items will cause the page to be output in either PDF format, or RTF format, which can be edited by Microsoft Word. Depending on your browser type and configuration, the document will open in the browser or a dialog will appear to open or save the document to your workstation.
Export Multiple Pages to Word or PDF
Any page list, such as What's New, Watchlist, All Pages, or a page list generated by search, now has checkboxes next to each list item. A new Export menu, with 'Export as PDF' and 'Export as Word' items, is in the upper right corner of the list view. Select the pages you wish to export by ticking their checkboxes, and select the export from the Export menu. Depending on your browser type and configuration, the document will open in the browser or a dialog will appear to open or save the document to your workstation.
