Forrest generates a pdf file for each separate document of your project. As well you can create
a pdf of the whole site. But sometimes it may be necessary to generate a pdf file out of selected
tab, i.e. only for certain parts of the site."

I would have expected to see a site.pdf, containing the whole site, but I don't.

It should say that site.pdf is the only aggregate page available to be
generated by default.  To actually generate it, add a label attribute to
the <all> node in site.xml.  This will cause it to appear on the menu, and
in turn cause forrest to follow that link and generate the page.
