How to print the whole OpenCPN manual?

Hello,
I am new to this forum and to OpenCPN.
Is there a way to print the whole manual of OpenCPN in one shot?
Thank you in advance!

The manual that comes with OpenCPN - "About OpenCPN" -> Help, is just one loooong web page, that should be OK to print. Alternatively it's also available here: OpenCPN User Manual, or here as a compressed html archive: https://launchpad.net/~opencpn/+arch....0.orig.tar.xz

Thank you so much for your replies and links. I have now the long the manual available and can read it on one screen while learning and testing on the other one. I really appreciate.
Thank you again!

After using Gyros solution I took it a step further. I went to this site PDF to DOC - Convert PDF to Word Online
and converted the pdf to doc. I can now type in my own notes and questions to myself as I go. Maybe I can also help to improve the manual.

From HTML to PDF to Word?? Complicated! Why donít you edit your local HTML file so you have your own notes on screen when needed?

Chessyman, help on the manual would be very welcome indeed.

Btw.: if you compare the installed manual with the online/web version then you should discover that the onboard manual reflects the stable version of OCPN while the web based one shows and tries to catch up with the betas.
If you want to help to keep the manual up-to-date get the beta and work from this part please. What not excludes to optimize the existing documentation...
