  • Great!!

  • When will you have something we can download to use offlne?

  • @Anonymous Since its just on TechNet you probably will have to export it using the default TechNet export options. I doubt they will do an offline Excel spreadsheet and Visio diagram like we had before. It would be nice though!

  • You can download the topics yourself into a PDF file by using the export multiple topics feature at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/export/help(lightweight). I've just tested this and it does the job pretty well.
