Installable with the Extension Manager


This application allow you to create and manage collections in order to export them to PDF.

On main page you can create a new collection, edit an existing collection, reorder an existing collection and export an existing collection to PDF.


On edit you have two lists, first list display the documents that already exists. You can uncheck them, and after saving it will be excluded from collection.


The second list display all the documents that are in the current wiki without documents that are in the current collection.


You can reorder an existing collection using drag and drop.


From the main page you can export to PDF the entire collection. On export page you can select a PDF template or export without a template. You have three checkboxes: check "Start on odd page" if you want the export ed pdf to start on an odd page, check "Cover" if you want the exported pdf to have a cover and "Table of Contents" if you want the exported pdf to have a Table of Contents.
