Saving this page as a PDF file
There are occasions when it is useful to save a web page as a PDF file to be a permanent
resource on your computer, or to send to others.
Although it is also possible to save webpages as HTML files, this is less satisfactory, and may
involve saving the graphics separately in an overall folder. PDF does away with these
To save this page as a PDF file, complete with all graphics:
This saved PDF will will appear identical to the web page, and will include clickable links.
- click on the ‘Click here to get your pdf’
link you see on the PDFonFly page that should appear below this popup window
- this will jump you past
the Google ads to a box where the URL is already entered, and you must enter a 'CAPTCHA' code by
copying the numbers and letters you can see where it says 'enter code'; then click on the 'convert to PDF' button
- When you click on this, the PDF conversion will
appear in a new tab or window, having opened Acrobat Reader within your browser.
- Click on the graphic at far left of Acrobat toolbar:
'save a copy'. Choose a suitable
file name and a directory to save it. Then close the Acrobat window. You will then be back
at the PDFonFly page – use your back button to return to original
Internet Evangelism Day page or
click here to return to your original page.
You can install PDF conversion software on your own computer, to which you ‘print’
instead of to a conventional printer. The advantage of these is that because you are using
a print action, the print style-sheet of the page comes into action, and the PDF file contains
only the main text, without the menu, header, sidebars, etc. An excellent free program for this purpose
– may also require Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 to be installed on your computer too. Advantage is that
it does not display its own name on the PDF files it creates.
