Hello Hanna,

It is truly annoying that MadCap doesn't offer a print topic to target
function, without having to modify or create a custom target.

However, I have a very usable work-around....

You just need to install a Windows printer that outputs directly to PDF.
Adobe Acrobat includes one but there are many free print to PDF drivers.

Then... select a Preview as PDF from the XML editor. From the preview,
right-click and select Print..., select your Print to PDF driver and save
the resulting PDF. You will have a PDF of the chapter that appears
identical to the preview.

Best regards,
Shawn
