Create PDFs from a Website
In this scenario, let’s say you have found an amazing website and want to print it out. A website is made up of multiple webpages, so you'll need to follow the following steps for each webpage.
First, go to the webpage you want converted to a PDF. Then open Adobe Acrobat Pro. On the icon bar, select the “Create PDF” icon and scroll to the “From Web Page” line. Alternatively, you can press Control + O. (Apple + O on Macs.)
Now a window should pop up, allowing you to enter or browse for the URL address of the webpage you want converted.
Adobe Acrobat Pro will automatically convert the webpage. It may take anywhere from several seconds to a minute or two to convert the webpage, depending on how much and what kind of information is being converted.
Some things to be aware of when converting a webpage:
- Webpages often use font sizes larger than what you normally see in a document. So when you convert a webpage, you may be converting text with a font size anywhere from 14-18 points, which will look strange on paper.
- Webpages often use spacing as a way to make text easy to read on a monitor. When a page is converted to a PDF, however, you may see much more space than is normally needed in a printable document.
