Working with a limited set-up (Adobe Acrobat X Pro, IE 7, Firefox 9) I need to create hundreds of PDF archives of websites. As much as possible I need to preserve the style and layout of the pages. I also need to remove certain page elements. Text must be preserved,
There are two methods I have tried:
Using Acrobat X Pro to capture pages
- Pros: The pages are captured very faithfully.
- Cons: The PDF editing tools are very limited so I am unable to make necessary modifications to the pages.
Using Firefox 9 to print as PDF
- Pros: I can use the Hack the Web and Firebug extensions to make all the page modifications I need.
- Cons: The resulting PDF lacks links and doesn't print the page as it appears on-screen.
Adobe do have an Acrobat extension for Firefox, but they haven't updated it lately. Them supporting their application would probably be my ideal solution, but I'm very interested to find alternative solutions!
