Smart and useful plugin

Thanks to the posts in the support section I finally got it working. In any case some coding skills are required. But then the plugin is really useful.

If using a child theme the folder with the pdf template file needs to be placed in the parent theme folder. This was a very helpful hint.

A basic code in the pdf.php file could be

<?php
while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();
the_title();
the_content();
endwhile;
?>

Simple plugin but very effective.

Very useful to generate product sheet (included images) in Woocommerce and download or send by mail.
