You have a execlent print function for the articles, however when trying to save an article it saves as HTM. Is there a possibility you could add a save function that would store the text and photo's, ie PDF?

Thanks

Robert

Hi Robert,

Welcome to HTG and great to see you like the articles that much :)
You can add a virtual printer and print files to PDF with Bullzip PDF printer.

Cheers,

Sarah.

Get a free PDF printing program like BullZip. It installs a virtual printer on your computer that allows you to use it like a normal printer, only it creates PDF's and allows you to save them where ever.

EDIT: SarahJames beat me to it

+++ for the virtual printer idea.
i use pdf redirect. can have a look at it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gnb8l39cSIo

so when youre on the page / article you would like to save in pdf format, yu can just go to > file > print.
when you get the window where you can select your printer - you select your virtual printer (in my case pdf predirect) and hit print.

you can also use your mouse and ctrl button to select the items you want printed and go to file > print.
theres should (might) be an option with a litle box you can tick that states "print selection" > tick the box, and only the stuff you highlighted will print.

youknowita,
if youre talking about re-posting in a blog or something - rules say thats a no-no.

but if you were uncertain about what the topic is about - the OP is asking how he / she can print articles to pdf format to save and read off line / archive / etc., ???
