How to convert a web page to PDF

Lori KassubaDecember 13, 2011

There are two different ways to turn a website into a PDF file using Acrobat X Std. or Pro. You can either do this from a supported web browser, such as this one, using the PDFMaker plug, or directly within Acrobat X Std. or Pro

In a supported web browser you will find an icon in the toolbar to convert a current web page to PDF or add a web page to an existing PDF. You can also print your web page to PDF, as well as convert and automatically email the file.

To capture a web page from within Acrobat, select Create PDF from Web Page command from the File menu or the Create menu dropdown. In the Create PDF from Web Page dialog you can specify how many levels you would like to capture from a particular website. You can also specify of you would like bookmarks, headers/footers, and various other options in the resulting PDF file. Once I clock OK, and select the Create button, Acrobt will capture the web page or pages you specified. Notice that even multimedia can be captured.

After you have a page or site captured in Acrobat, you can use the additional commands under the Tools pane, Document Processing panel, Web Capture command to append more pages, check out web page information, and open up a particular page in your web browser.
