Printed documentation is coming...

In the meantime, you can use the RTFer stack available on the user contributions page to extract the online documentation to RTF format (or text or HTML).

By the way, as a general note, I fixed the but in RTFer where it put the syntax example in place of the example code, and I added a page number to the RTF export.

Yes and no. Yes, in that you simply open the HyperCard stack in Revolution (couldn't be easier than that, could it?). No, in that many HyperCard stacks use XCMDs or syntax that are unnecessary or slightly different in Revolution. Generally, for any reasonably complicated stack it's a reasonably involved process.
