      Description

      Moodle weekly view lets us write the students weekly assignments, both at and away from the computer. A nice improvement would be to print the content in a section. This way, both students and staff know that the latest master version is in Moodle, yet they can review tasks that are to be done away from the computer. I think a print icon that triggers a CSS stylesheet for printing might be easier than creating a PDF, but for the user either will do.

          Thanks for the suggestion.

          It would be good to be able to generally deal with the print media type through themes.

          Please bear in mind different paper sizes, A4, US letter, when creating the print stylesheets, as well as different browsers capabilities.

          Here is a US letter example for Internet Explorer 8 http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd433064%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

          In Europe A4 is the norm, so this example needs some changes.

          We have detected that this issue has been inactive for over two years and also did not collect many votes. It is possible that it has been already implemented in a more recent version of Moodle, or it is not highly demanded. There are unlimited number of ways Moodle functinality can be expanded and improved but we would like to concentrate on the features that will benefit majority of users, and which can not be implemented as plugins. If you have a suggestion for improving Moodle core, and there is no open issue for it in the tracker, please start a new forum discussion to see how many other users agree with you, and then create a new issue providing as many details as possible.
