    I just tried it on my old 4th Gen iPad. Site opens up fine and login box appears. I cancel the login box and page appears fine. But there is little to navigate, unlike when viewing from desktop computer.
    Humans are pretty much monkeys with car keys.

    The Save to PDF link is either broken, or the site that does it is down. That really sucks.

    The "Save to PDF" only seems to do the one particular page viewed at the time.

    Yup. Confluence does not allow you to print an entire space unless you are a) a valid user and b) have space privs to be able to do so. NT may decide to print the site to PDF and make it available. It is not something enabled in confluence by default.

    Works for me, two things to do:
    Login will pop up a couple of times, just hit cancel
    Under the Share icon, tap on Request Desktop Site.... off you go

    PS, scrolling is weird, I’d suggest using the Reader View (little lines icon to the left of the address bar).

    Tried the request desktop site and it works. Atleast I can see the index on the left now.
    Thanks for the hint.

    Looks like much of the content is composed of Microsoft Word document files served up by the web pages. Might be possible to save the more useful ones off as such? Haven't tried it, myself.

    It really is no such thing. If anything it is composed of InDesign documents massaged through the importer to convert to Confluence, but edited from their 2015 version so that there are few comparisons overall if there have been changes made since 2015 (the LightWave version rather than the year, though both apply ). Word hasn't been used in the manufacture of LightWave documentation since I've been on the watch, and that's fifteen years or so...

    Okay, then, my bad. Here is a screen shot of part of the directory structure of that site:

    When I open one of those files in Word I get this:

    Here's the header of one of the .doc files, shows the Confluence lineage you mention. Also note the tags for Office and Word type doc handling.

    So, I learned something today.

    No insult was intended, the actual app used to create the files doesn't matter in the context of my suggestion. Point is, they walk and talk like Word files and can be handled as such, and that similarity might be useful for people having issues reading them. It's all good.

    I didn't think there was, never fear I am very surprised to see this and can only imagine that Word is used as a stepping stone between InDesign and Confluence by some automagic process for conversion. Can you give me a url for the docs list you have there, please?

    That very well could be since everyone tends to use the "wonderful" software that composes MS Office as the gold standard. Might even be an XML export/import between them.
