This question already has an answer here:

Web pages can be very long. When I save it as PDF, chrome splits it to multiple pages. Is there a way to create a single page PDF with custom page width/length?

I need it to be a PDF in order to insert as attachment in wiki pages I’m maintaining.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Is there a reason you need it to be PDF? every browser can also save as compact web page: MHT which stores all files and text and graphics etc inside the file. Opening the MHT file will open it in the browser and you'll see exactly what you saw before the export, except this time offline. – LPChip Jan 21 '15 at 15:17

    I'm appalled that there's no plugin to save an auto-sized PDF page of w hole web page (with similar browser width, for example). WHo prints stuff physically anyway? – Demis Apr 19 '16 at 21:23

Print the page and select "Adobe PDF" as the printer. This will allow you print the page content in a readable format. You can also use the "Selection only" box to "print" only the content you want (see first screenshot below).

To set a custom page size, click "Print using system dialogue," select "Adobe PDF," and click "Preferences." In the preferences window, go to the "Paper/Quality" tab, and click "Advanced." In the advanced dialogue, open the "Paper Size" drop-down menu and select either a preset or custom page size (see second screenshot below).

    It breaks a long page into several pages in the pdf – IttayD Jan 21 '15 at 15:28
  • I've added instructions for using custom page sizes to my original answer. Can you confirm that you see "Adobe PDF" as an available printer? The Print to PDF plugin that I am using was included with Acrobat XI Pro so you may not see these same exact options. – P Fitz Jan 21 '15 at 15:36
  • Another option would be changing the view settings in Acrobat (or whichever PDF viewer you are using) to eliminate the gaps between the pages. In Reader or Acrobat XI, you'd go to View -> Page Display -> and uncheck "Show gaps between pages" – P Fitz Jan 21 '15 at 15:42
  • What page size do you choose for "just include everything on this whole page"? (i think that was the question, right?) – Demis Apr 19 '16 at 21:17

You can use Google Chrome, use the shortcut key Ctrl+P, under the Destination use the Change button and select PDF (or PDFCreator)

This solution doesn't need any PDF printer installed

  • It breaks into multiple pages – IttayD Jan 21 '15 at 15:27
  • If it is broken into multiple pages and you have Adobe PDF Viewer installed, you can select all the files, right click, and chose to combine the PDFs into one. – Eric F Jan 21 '15 at 16:17
