I've tried the suggestions at http://meta.math.stackexchange.com/questions/6593/printing-pages-from-m-s-e and http://meta.math.stackexchange.com/questions/3079/is-it-possible-to-convert-and-possibly-download-the-answers-discussions-in-pdf, but printing to PDF distorts and removes the LATEX formatting. I do: File --> Print --> Select "Adobe PDF" as the printer. I've also tried StackPrinter but that didn't solve the problem.

May I please ask if anyone knows how to solve this problem?

I am using Firefox 19.0, Adobe Acrobat XI Pro (V11.0), and Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit version.

I'm trying to print Proving Pascal's Rule : ${{n} \choose {r}}={{n-1} \choose {r-1}}+{{n-1} \choose r}$ when $1\leq r\leq n$ but the result is the following: http://i.stack.imgur.com/1pScM.png . Thank you very much.

    $\begingroup$ @MartinSleziak: Thank you for your response. I should add that I also tried StackPrinter and that only gave me the same PDF, with the distortions and omissions of LATEX. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Yes. Printing from MSE "sucks the big one". Especially on MathJax heavy pages. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Printing to PDF works fine for me (Firefox 19 with Mac OS X 10.8's built-in PDF output), so you can use this for the time being: dropbox.com/s/bdaw3690v8a6365/mse.pdf $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I just checked with Firefox 19 on Linux and it worked fine too. Maybe it's just Windows, or "Adobe PDF", that doesn't like MathJax? $\endgroup$
