If you look at a print preview does it paginate properly? We have seen that some browsers split a photo over two pages or add odd formatting. The work around is to load the saved web archive into a WYSIWYG tool to reset pagination.
When I open the saved HTML, it's continuous, no paging at all, looks fine.

File —> print and print to PDF. Does the resulting PDF keep images intact? Do the pages look the same as the browser?

Do not do a ctl-p unless you own stock in a toner company.
My already completed 'Lil Bit'. A Martens Goosen V12 set up to sail me to the fishing holes.
Currently working on making a Helms 24 our coastal cruiser.

The PDF looks ok, no broken photos but it does need to jam everything into a printabale page format which is a little weird.

For my archiving purposes, the saved HTML file is better than a pdf so the pdf format doesn't concern me. The pdf may feel a little more "portable" but the saved html is easy to port as well, all the photos etc just go into a single folder in the saved location.

I don't even own toner! That's the devils dust!

Hi Jayson,
This is very good I have saved my thread and even printed the first 10 pages, but best of all is that I have all the pictures in chronological order and have seen things I have forgotten already. It is also nice to save other Builders threads to study the printed version just like reading a book. Congratulations to this improvement.
Greetings from Karl
