More than 40 post(s) in one printable version?

Hello,

I wonder whether Mobileread can introduce an option to show one thread in ONE long printable version. Currently, the maximum number of posts displayed in one printable page is limited to 40. If the thread has more than 40 posts, we will have multiple printable pages and it is harder to convert the entire thread into an ebook format.

For example, if I found an interesting thread, I change it into a printable version (Thread Tools - Show Printable Version) and select 'Show 40 post(s) from this thread on one page'. Then I convert the page into LRF using web2lrf. However, this becomes bit more difficult with a thread having more than 40 posts. For instance, we need 5 printable pages to display all the posts in the following thread.

Since this site has many ebook users, I guess some users may use the printable pages to make an ebook file rather than print them on papers. If it is the case, I think it may be beneficial to have an option to display all the posts in one printable page.

If it is technically difficult, it is fine. However, if it can be implemented without much problem, such an option can be really helpful.
