I am using Opera 11.64 and 12 and I want to remove the title and footer text when printing to PDF. In Firefox, I can customize the PDF before it is printed, but such settings aren't as apparent in Opera. I only want the content. How can I remove the title, date, page number, and URL when printing to PDF?

Which version of Opera? – iglvzx May 19 '12 at 3:36
@iglvzx: My Opera version is 11.64 and 12. I'm using it mainly in Linux. – Betterdev May 19 '12 at 3:40
Great. Thanks for also adding this info to your question. – iglvzx May 19 '12 at 3:41
To clarify, the title and footer are included when you use Print Preview or a different printer? I'm guessing this is not strictly related to PDF. – iglvzx May 19 '12 at 3:52
Do you mean what Aardvark is doing? – 0xC0000022L May 19 '12 at 3:56

You can remove the header and footer by going to opera:config and disabling the Show Printer Header preference. Be sure to save the changes!


Note: You could also clear the individual Print Left Header String, Print Right Header String, Print Left Footer String and Print Right Footer String fields.

To just disable header and footer completely you could simply untick Print->Print Options->Print headers and footers. Using the Preferences Editor is only necessary if you want to customize header and footer.
