Here’s how to convert and organize more with your web page.
Some of us would love to read a web page offline rather than online. There are many prevalent reasons for this and one of those is saving data. What if we can suggest having it printed into a PDF instead? This would be the way to maximize functionality in any task you’re in or things want to achieve.
On a Mac, you can easily save a webpage as a PDF through most Web Page browsers, and the default browser which is Safari may be the simplest option. Here’s how to do it:
- In the Safari app on your Mac, choose File > Print.
- Click the options pop-up menu (in the separator bar), choose Safari, then set the webpage printing options.
If you don’t see the options pop-up menu in a separator bar to the right of the page preview, click Show Details at the bottom of the Print dialog.
To create a PDF of the webpage, click PDF at the bottom of the dialog, then choose what you want to do with the PDF.
If this doesn’t work for you or you’re using a different web browser on a Mac that doesn’t support the direct ‘Export as PDF’ option, you can still save a webpage as a PDF by using Print to PDF on the Mac. This will be available on every Mac OS release. If you use that feature often enough you can even set a “Save as PDF” keyboard shortcut to perform that function.
