Hi Derek,

I had a quick look on the School demo site and found a couple of books in the course Pilgrimage.

Cool, thanks.

I want to do some research on Book Printing to see if I can get it looking better in the print format.

I've done this. I found this article very useful, and use PrinceXML to actually make the pdfs. Here is a screenshot of the book  in moodle:


and here is a snapshot of the pdf version:

@Chris, fascinating.

This looks really good.

I've just checked out the books that Helen and mary linked to in demo.moodle.

The lousy print format is still there.  Looks like hard coding.

So, to whoever . . .       can I draw your attention to this tracker item: https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-43385

Hi Derek

A gave some thoughts to a similar question related to the wiki. See "Learning by developing a book, but then (lack of export)" https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=267419&parent=1156091.

Caution: I have the feeling that this is not a popular approach.
