Converting Web Pages to Adobe PDF

Article Description

Have you ever printed a page directly from the Web, and discovered with dismay that the finished product looked nothing like the original version onscreen? The Adobe Creative Team shows how Adobe Acrobat 9 can help solve that problem (and others!) by enabling you to save a web page directly to PDF.

Downloading and Converting Linked Pages

When you click a web link in the Adobe PDF version of the web page and it links to an unconverted page, Acrobat downloads and converts that page to Adobe PDF.

  1. Navigate through the converted website until you find a web link to an unconverted page. We used the "Events & Promotions" link below the Adobe Press title bar (see Figure 3).
  2. Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) the web link, and choose Append to Document from the context menu (see Figure 4). The Download Status dialog box again displays the status of the download. When the download and conversion are complete, the linked page appears in the Acrobat window. A bookmark for the page is added to the Bookmarks list.
  3. Choose File > Save As, rename the file Web1.pdf, and save it.
  4. When you're finished looking at your converted web pages, exit Acrobat.

Next, you'll convert web pages directly from Internet Explorer.
