I am trying to convert this page to a single-page, 19 x 13 pdf file.

I am running Firefox under Ubuntu and trying to use the Print To File option, but it is splitting the web page into multiple pages.

Is there a way to get the page into a single-page pdf with the given dimensions?

Edit: I already tried setting the page dimensions to 19 x 13 using custom page size. The only noticeable effect is that each page now has more whitespace, but the page is still split across multiple pages.

Also, I already saw the answer suggesting the Abduction plugin, which works, but I prefer a pdf because it is more scalable.

  1. Navigate to the page
  2. File > Print (or use CTRL +P )
  3. Switch to "Page Setup" page
  4. In "Page Size" drop down list choose last option called "Manage Custom Sizes"
  5. You will see the dialog window with settings you are looking for

EDIT 1:

Note that the page has to be small enough to fit in your specified dimensions, otherwise you will still end up having multiple pages in your PDF. If the page does not fit, you have to options:

  1. To change the dimensions proportionally (keep same ratio)
  2. Use Scale function in Page Setup window and scale down the original page. In this case it is important to untick the option "Ignore Scaling And Shrink To Fit Page Width" on Options page.

Then please post the settings you used. You should have posted them in your questions. –  smc Apr 3 at 18:22
    
Point taken, and updated question. –  merlin2011 Apr 3 at 18:25
    
I have just tried it and it prints correctly. First thing you need to know that by default 19x13 will result into 19 inches x 13 inches. This is not enough to fit the contents of the page that you have linked in your question so if by saying 19x13 you mean the ratio, then go for 52x76 [which is (19*4)x(13*4)]. –  smc Apr 3 at 18:30
    
On the other hand, if you want to shrink the whole thing down to 19x13 inches, then you did not phrase your question correctly and you need to scale the contents. I will update my original answer shortly –  smc Apr 3 at 18:32
