    Default This is a bump and to say....

    Just to let you know I'm still atempting to post PDFs.

    I'm waiting for an e-mail reply from Mathew from Pixologic and if it's ok, I'll post the PDFs here. (He replyed once but I think we missunderstood each other. --He thought I wanted to post pages from ZBC elswhere.)

    I'll be glad to help if I can!!

    I'm trying Scrapbook extension for firefox, and I like it. But one thing i wish I could do is automatically append links to captured pages. What I meaning is like in Acrobat Pro, I can capture a page, and in that pdf file, I can select links to append to the document. However, with this extension. All i can do is capture every page to a topic to it's own backedup page. If I'm reading page one of this captured topic and click on the link to go to page to, It would have to connect to the net, being that I haven't manually gone through, changing the links to target the other captured pages to this topic. Idunno... this extension doesn't seem all that special anymore...lol

    Hi Oz,

    Like I said, whatever works, that's what we use. But check this...

    With ScrapBook open, press the Tools dropdown... and check the box that says "Show 'capture detail' dialog when capturing by drag-and-drop into Sidebar".

    Then, after you restart Firefox, each time you drag a page to be saved, you'll see a dialog box that lets you configure exactly what you'll save, along with the selected page...

    One of the options is: "Capture all Linked Pages sequentially". Although this maybe MORE than you want on your local drive, it does give you a way to downloadn copies of ALL of the links to a single ScrapBook subdirectory. I guess you could just delete the captured pages you don't want.

    ScrapBook is still a work in progress and the site where you download the extension has a very long interesting wishlist!

    Not quite sure you posted in the right thread by saying the above cuz sorry but if you thought I'd made a DVD out of the PDFs that can be made from this web site... Well your wrong.
    I'm simply attempting to post PDFs of web pages from THIS web site (ZBC) HERE so all of you can view them unconnected from the net.
    I repeat...the PDFs are all as-is meaning you'll have the strange impression your still browsing the ZBC forums. For those of you who'd like to print them. That means you have a printer at your disposal so just change the web page to friendly printer view and ... print.
    The PDFs will be FREE. (just want to help those who'd like to have them not make any money out of it--wouldn't be alouwed anyway.)
    Untill then , No news = good news so I may post some soon.

    I don't see a need for PDF's here. Seems like a lot of work when we can just save our own as we find a thread we want to keep. If I want to save a thread as a PDF, I just select the printer friendly version of the thread using the thread tools link. Then I use the Save-as-PDF function in the print dialog box. Anything you can print can be saved to disk as a PDF.

    Works great.

    I, too, prefer PDF format over webarchive format, since PDF can be thumbnailed in an image cataloger like iView Media Pro.

    Default For those who cant convert...

    Stop me if I'm wrong but to be able to convert web pages you need a programe such as adobe acrobat or other similar converter utility. (web browsers alone dont convert.) So this thread is for those who'd like to possess them in PDFs but cant afford it (by bying adobe....)

    Of course, the best would be to convert to PDF from the printer friendly version. It's just that since I never had the intention of printing them myself, I always converted the web page as-is. But I'll gladly do any request. (remember: I wont convert and post HERE web pages from other sites.)

    Well, I'm on a Mac. Maybe Wintel users don't have this option. But on a Mac you can save anything printable as a PDF file. The underlying graphics system on OSX is Display Postscript, and the default image format is PDF.

    So if you have a Mac, just save what you are viewing as a PDF from the print dialog. Not sure what the equivalent is for windows users. I thought it was the same on both. Sorry.
