The Exclude in print category is used from the Help:Books|book tool. The category Exclude in print used to be used to prevent certain templates (e.g. navigation templates) from being included in the output of the printed books or PDF & ODF documents. See Help:Books/for experts for more information. This feature is currently broken.

Templates to exclude in offline exports

There are many templates with content which should be excluded in print versions. There are at least three major types:

Warning & hinting messages
are useless and distracting in offline exports as users presumably considered them when selecting the article for export and elected to export it anyway. Examples: Wikipedia:Template messages/Sources of articles|Sources of articles, Wikipedia:Template messages/Disputes|Disputes, Wikipedia:Template messages/Deletion|Deletion, w:Wikipedia:Template messages/General|General ...
Navigational content
Navigation links are useless and distracting in exports. Examples: Wikipedia:Template messages/Compact tables of contents|Compact TOC, Wikipedia:Wikimedia sister projects|Wikimedia sister projects ...
