PDF Instructables are great - let's have more! Answered

I think it's great that we're able to download a PDF version of our 'Ibles, but it seems to only work with recently-published ones. Is it possible to convert old Instructables to PDFs also? Thanks for looking into this.

PDF's links don't respond for me on any instruction page. They used to but lately nothing happens. Availability of PDF'S is for me a very convenient part of the whole process. Is this a policy change or other?

PDFs are generated each time, so it should work for ALL Instructables.

The old ones should work just like the new ones. Can you provide a link to an older project that doesn't work so I can investigate?

I took a closer look at an older Ible and realized that it can be downloaded as a PDF, but it does not appear in the Downloads section of my profile. I suppose I assumed that all Instructables created by oneself would appear there since my two most recent ones automatically have.

Feel free to close this thread - just a silly mistake
