Are there any plans to provide an option in the settings to print out a post-with or without the comments- as a PDF file without all the clutter of links around?
Just to capture what is in the comments: There is a Stack Printer web app that can print out questions with all of the comments and answers in a printer friendly format.
There is a "bookmarklet", or a short script that can be executed from a bookmark in a browser, on the About page. If you add the URL to your favorites/bookmarks bar in your browser, it will create a printer friendly version of the current question you're reading when you click it. Just right click on the Bookmarklet link and choose the appropriate bookmark function for your browser from the context menu.
