Step-by-step guide

Step 1: Enable the "Book creator" tool

Fig.1 – The "print/export" box

The "Book creator" tool can be enabled from the "Print/export" box on the left hand side of the browser screen towards the bottom (see Fig.1). Click on "Create a book". The "Book creator" tool will appear at the top of your screen.

Step 2: Gather articles

Individual pages

By clicking on the "Add this page to your book" link, the current page being viewed is added to the collection. To add another article, simply go to that article, and click on "Add this page to your book" again.

Another way to add articles to your book is to hover your mouse over a link to another article. After one second, a message will pop up, giving you the option to add the linked article to your book.

Categories

If you go on a category page, the "Add this page to your book" will have changed into "Add this category to your book". Clicking on "Add this category to your book" will add all the articles in that category.

Likewise, if you hover on a category link (located at the very bottom of articles), a message will pop-up, giving you the option to add the entire category to your book.

After you have selected the articles that interest you, you can click on "Suggest pages" and you will be presented with a list of articles that are related to your selection. This helps you to create a more complete book if you run out of ideas, or just want to make sure that you haven't forgotten anything.

Step 3: Review your book
