How can I find the pdf versions of the topics in Mathematica Documentation Center? It is not practical to open the pages of functions one by one and read. I am not talking about the tutorial collection.

Thanks

    $\begingroup$ AFAICT, there aren't any PDFs of those. You could print the notebooks as PDFs, but that is a lot of work, and the rather haphazard system these days (as opposed to the tree system of older versions) make organization tedious. The docs were apparently optimized for searching, at the expense of easy browsing. $\endgroup$ – J. M. is away Oct 8 '16 at 5:05
  • $\begingroup$ This Wolfram site has links to thousands of pages of documentation in freely downloadable PDFs. $\endgroup$ – Sjoerd C. de Vries Oct 8 '16 at 14:37
  • $\begingroup$ @SjoerdC.deVries ...except that when you click on any of the "Download Free PDF" links, you get directed to the web version. There's no PDF to download. $\endgroup$ – QuantumDot Oct 8 '16 at 15:46
  • $\begingroup$ @QuantumDot hmmm, that used to work. $\endgroup$ – Sjoerd C. de Vries Oct 8 '16 at 22:34
  • $\begingroup$ @QuantumDot archive.org still has them. For instance, try this link $\endgroup$ – Sjoerd C. de Vries Oct 8 '16 at 22:38
