Re: st: Using -translate- to create PDF of .hlp file
Unless you are trying to print a lot of files, the simplest way is to
Open the help file in the viewer window, select Print Viewer..., and
then click on the PDF button in the printer dialog.

Argh! First line truncated on previous message.... Resending...
I recently stumbled upon the following files that are nicely
formatted PDFs of the help document for -outreg-:
I'm fairly certain that these files were created from within Stata,
but I'm not having much luck replicating them. The following command
"works", in the sense that I do get a PDF of the help file (note that
I am working with Stata 8.2 on Mac OS X, which allows the direct
creation of a PDF according to -whelp translate-):
translate "~/Documents/ado/plus/o/outreg.hlp" outreg.pdf,
but this command yields a file without the rich formating of the above
examples. (The second linked example above appears to be for an older
version of -outreg-, but I prefer the layout and organization of it --
plus the fonts in the first linked example don't render quite right
Any suggestions? -translator query Viewer2pdf- didn't turn up
anything that seemed appropriate to this issue, AFAICT. Thanks.
