Printed documentation is provided with the major releases of some products and tools. The online documentation sometimes has information not included with the printed material and may be more current than the printed material. If you want to purchase printed documentation, see the online store at the MathWorks Web site at http://www.mathworks.com.
You can print the current page displayed in the Help browser, or print a page or an entire book from the PDF version of the documentation.
Printing a Page from the Help Browser
To print the page currently shown in the Help browser, click the print button in the display pane toolbar. The Print dialog box appears.
The Pages field in the Print dialog box shows the total number of pages to be printed and lets you specify the range of pages you want to print. If there is more than one page in the range, it means that multiple physical pages are needed to print the single page displayed in the Help browser.
Complete the dialog box and press OK to print the page.
Printing the PDF Version of Documentation
If you need to print only a few pages and if the quality does not need to be equivalent to pages in a printed book, you can print directly from the MATLAB Help browser--see Printing a Page from the Help Browser.
If you need to print more than a few pages of documentation, or if you need the pages to appear as if they came from a printed book, print the PDF version of the documentation. PDF documentation is shown and printed using your PDF reader, usually Adobe Acrobat Reader. The PDF documentation reproduces the look and feel of the printed book, complete with fonts, graphics, formatting, and images. In the PDF document, use links from the table of contents, index, or within the document to go directly to the page of interest.
To print a PDF version of documentation, follow these steps:
If there is more than one item you can print for the product, a page listing the choices appears. Select the item you want to print. Your PDF reader opens, displaying the documentation.
If you have problems, check the Help preferences--see PDF Reader--Specifying Its Location.
