Perhaps the word “printing” should be removed from the topic title.
AFAIK, no one really wants to print to paper.
###However, there are at least two very good use cases to have an option to display the entire topic:
- Create an PDF from the full topic, that can be used to:
- Read and annotate offline (like on a plane).
- Provide as a reference for management or your team
- Clip to an Evernote Note
- Same uses as #1.
- Have as a technical reference that can be tagged, linked to, and annotated within Evernote.
- Be available for searching along with other Evernote Notes.
- Clip to other Knowledgebases, like DevonThink.
I don’t see having this “full topic display” feature would have any significant effect on the normal usage of a Discourse forum.
Thanks for considering this feature request.
