When I print an MO thread (using Chrome, at least), the font size is extremely small (8pt? nested indices are very hard to read, at least). Since I don't think this is easily fixable on the user side (at least not without MathJax getting all messed up), could we have a "printer-friendly" option or an export to PDF? (Of course, a script that would transform markup to LaTeX would be gold standard, but I'm not asking that much.)

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you! That's a very useful service. (Considering my question answered, unless anyone wants to build a PDF exporter...) $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 18, 2013 at 15:55

  • $\begingroup$ Nested indices are usually hard to read, and often deter me from making sense of a question. Better typesetting would get more answers! $\endgroup$

As mentioned in the comments StackPrinter is often useful for such purposes.

This tool is very frequently mentioned in several other posts on this topic, sometimes various other tools are mentioned too:

    $\begingroup$ The question was basically answered in the comments. (Although I have mentioned some other solution. Basically, I repeated the same advice I have previously given in chat.) I suppose that many users might ask about this, so it's probably better to have at least some answer - not just comments. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 9, 2019 at 6:09
