Same here. I have all sorts of stuff, mostly drawings, which I've printed out - from multiple sources - and stuffed them into my Haynes manuals. (And both the Haynes and the printouts have a few grease spots on them.)

The one issue I run into is that the digital manuals are often not printer friendly. For example, the text may come out on one page while the pic it applies to is on another. So I'll often put some extra editing time into hacking them into more readable printouts.

If your socket set is all the same brand, you might be a city slicker.

The nice thing about digital manuals is the ability to scale things like schematics up and print on larger pages.
8.5x11 or 11x17 becomes 12x18 with better detail readability for my old eyes.
