The second best thing you can do is to use StackPrinter along with a PDF printer like this...

Well, there's an StackPrinter. It has a bookmarklet and a greasemonkey script that can be used to easily print a virtual copy of a question. The only problem is that the only output I've seen from this printer is uglier than me, I'm unaware of how to configure it to a nicer output. There are also virtual printers such as: Nitro PDF Creator; PDFill; ...

The comment by @Martin Sleziak basically answered my question. I recovered the script through the Wayback Machine using the most up-to-date archived version. I then made some minor changes to the script to make it work without hosting it at a webserver and voilà, it works so far. If the actual author of the script sees any problem in this and doesn't want ...

Some time back StackEdit veered away from MathJax support for $\LaTeX$ and instead took up the KaTeX package. Presently they support fewer "environments" than are provided here under MathJax. A workaround for the particular deficiency you found is to use \begin{aligned} and \end{aligned} rather than the (unsupported by StackEdit) align* environment.

StackExchange is moving forward on their plans to discontinue all community blogs, including our blog. The SE team has offered to provide data dumps of the current blog content; in JNat's own words from the Teachers' Lounge: As you've probably heard, we're discontinuing community blogs, and I'm contacting each community to see what they wanna do with ...

Printing an answer by id is now supported on StackPrinter. To print all: http://www.stackprinter.com/export?question=6593&service=math.meta.stackexchange To print a specific answer: http://www.stackprinter.com/export?question=6593&service=math.meta.stackexchange&answer=6596 To print a specific answer keeping the question: http://www....

Summarizing my comments: In order to print a question from Math.SE using stackprinter, select "Mathematics" in the drop-down menu and fill the question id (the number following question/ in the question's web-address) in the search area. For example, for the question A locally metrizable space, fill '325355'. To print this question - select "Mathematics Meta"...

At a low level of activity I would manually "Save as..." each Webpage containing your posts (using your favorite browser), producing a complete copy of HTML and images locally on your own PC. (I can also recommend some kind of backup strategy for your PC, of course.) Such copying is naturally allowed by the terms of Creative Commons by-sa 3.0 with ...

If you need to view it only, use the browser's Save Page As... I do this for pages I need to study for awhile.

I tried a very naive solution. I used StackPrinter to prepare a question together with answers. I saved the page generated by StackPrinter. I obtained a html-file which looked like this. Then I simply edited it manually. I have removed almost all parts outside of <div class="answers"> ... </div>. (I left the question title, but if you want, you ...

You could try this: Copy the source(markdown/mathjax) of an answer/question, paste it into this markdown/mathjax editor (http://benweet.github.io/stackedit/) and then save as pdf. I'm not sure how good this pdf converter is, but I tried to convert this answer and it looks good: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/58922976/Answer-%20Is%20dy-dx%20not%20a%...

The easiest way is to click the [edit] link under the answer. It will contain the source Markdown of the post (or HTML, but not many people use that). The TeX commands will be included. Another way is via the Revisions page. If an answer has been edited, you can click the 'Edited by' link underneath the answer; otherwise, you'll have to construct the URL ...

Choice of technologies Since SE API gets real-time data, while SEDE returns data several days ago, the former will be used. It's better to write a web solution with AJAX, but since I'm not a web developer (even though I maintain the public GitLab instance of Staticman for comments support on static sites), I'll use command line utilities in Unix shell as ...

There are certainly many solutions how to do this off-site. (Some were suggested in the comments.) I will also point out that you could post a question and immediately delete it. You still can see it if you keep the link. Some things to keep in mind: Many deleted questions can lead to question ban. You can no longer edit the question while it is deleted. ...

For what it's worth, I have a Linux system and there is a command called import. This is done from a terminal window, I type in import filename.jpg as a command, at that point the usual mouse arrow now appears as peculiar crosshairs. I then click on the web browser, which is just Firefox. The result is the creation of a jpeg called filename.jpg in the ...

You can copy and paste here (by example, surely exist more software or online apps for this) and export it after as a md document, HTML or PDF. Or just save the content in a .text. There is a lot of apps to convert it after to markdown+mathjax.

Notice the URL where it says meta.math.stackexchange.com/questions/8748/how-to-use-math-stackprinter. The number after /questions/ is the key number which is your unique question ID.
