hi to all,

 

i am looking for an adobe acrobat alternative

 

i have tried recently the adobe acrobat x trial version to make some pdf files from web pages but i am not happy with the results

 

the web pages created with the adobe acrobat x seems to have missing parts and the file size is not at all small

 

also, the price of the adobe acrobat x is too expensive for me

 

i am looking for an alternative with cheaper price and  much better web page pdf creation

 

i do not understand why web pages cannot be created properly as pdf files

 

my web browsers are

 

opera and maxthon3

os windows xp sp3 x32 bits

 

many thanks in advance

Are you looking to simply print a WEB page as PDF. I would then use the free BullZip PDF printer. The new version requires .NET The older versions, I forgot which, do not require .NET I would need to look it up if you want the non .NET version

 

If you want to edit and create PDF pages then I would look at Foxit Phantom PDF. It has a 30 day demo.

 

Also take a look at PDFXchange products.

If all you want is to create PDF's from Web Pages I highly recommend Bullzip. It creates a virtual printer which will let you print a pdf from any Windows application. I use it all the time. 

 

Google Chrome Browser has a built in PDF printer. Any web page can be printed to PDF from within Chrome.

Are you trying to create web pages for a site or just print/copy from them?

Many web pages are created with parts that are proprietary or the author has created the file with locked permissons not to be able to copy or print that particular portion. Stuff pertaining to data bases or linked to a database off site will often not render.

 

If you are just trying to view [read] there is a pdf reader app that you can activate. But I do not remember how or where I came across it it in Win 10.
