print multipage article as one page pdf

by Mindstyle06 / December 5, 2010 9:56 PM PST

Hello folks,

I was wondering if there is any utility that will print multi-page webpage article to a single page pdf.

To give you an example, I would like to print a 39 page article, http://tinyurl.com/35l5yua, to a single page pdf. There is print option on the top of the page but it prints only one page. I wonder if such utility exists.

Many thanks

So you print to 39 separate pdf-files, then use a pdf-editor to combine them into one. Takes some time, but should surely work.

Thats exactly what I don't want to do.
Its really stupid of that specific website designer to think that people are going to print only one page of that article, or give such options, print current page only or print whole article!!

To accomplish this feat I think we need a PDF printer like BIOPDF as well as some PDF printer software that would fit it onto one page.

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&source=hp&q=pdf+printing+command+line finds the BIOPDF printer as well as command line printing.

What you asked for is "I was wondering if there is any utility that will print multi-page webpage article to a single page pdf."

Sadly I think this will take TWO utilities.

--> But that web page only supplies one page at a time so while I solved how to fit pages onto one page the web author did not supply a method to get it all at one printing.

This means you should try the SIMPLEST SOLUTION I know of and ask the web author for a single page view. It's their content so why not ask?
