Did you know that you can multi-select topics in the Technet library and export it to a PDF in a very nice format, with table of content and chapters?It is extremely nice for viewing on a tablet on a plane for instance?
I found this nice little feature in the Technet Library which I didn’t have a clue that it was there, I am probably the last person noticing it but if you haven’t used it before you should try it out.
If you click on the Print/Export icon on the top right on Technet you can select the option “Print Multiple Topics”, then you will come to a help page which will help you get started.
After that you will get a new bar with options, where you can select Add this topic
If I select for instance news in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager what’s new i SP1 chapter and add it to the Server 2012 what is new I already selected before. And when you have added all the topics you want, Click on the “Collection” button.
Then you will come to a page where you can see which topics you have selected and which format you want the export in either HTML or PDF
The end result is amazing! A PDF that you can read on the plane or wherever you like!
Thank you Microsoft Technet for a great feature!!

thanks for sharing.
I tried it but i think it works only in lightweight with limited content and not in classic view .In lightweight you can not select all the content what you see in classic (side by side view) to select multiple things.
Microsoft has removed multiple printing and Export in 2017. ANd now ?
