Displaying printing progress window (on by default) makes printing 3 or more times slower

First noticed this when I tried first time turning off printing progress window in pdf saver lite options. First on wikipedia. At first it was not so obvious, but with larger pages I noticed larger waiting time. Then tried it on various websites. It exists regardless of website and probably of progr...

Canceling printing in web browser (Firefox) does not cancel it in printer driver

Sometimes I forget something or change my mind during printing (for example I forget to copy file name from firefox sav as dialog so i can paste it into pdf printer dialog), then I press cancel, and although Firefox stops it, your app keeps waiting and offers me to save file. Can you make app detect...

Re: . (dot) in file name causes rest of file name to be truncated! SOLVED

And do not forget to also include other characters in page title just like Firefox does. For example : (replace it with _ or space). I like firefox and others browsers naming scheme. Because wikipedia articles with names Article, Template:Article, and Category:Article all get saved as Article. Curre...

Re: Remove links (bulk and quickly) SOLVED

Thanks, that worked. But links are not that much responsible for file size. Before removal of links file size: 169 KB (173.320 bytes) After: 156 KB (160.256 bytes) So considering that file size of pdf is similar to file size of html saved via save page we and print edit we extensions combination, wh...

Remove links (bulk and quickly) SOLVED

OK, I previously talked how Chrome prints to pdfs but of much larger file size (around 15x), and reason was that text is image actually. But that does not happen in Chrome's internal print to pdf option. In that case file size is only slightly larger (around 4x) than in Firefox. Figured out it is be...

Re: Printing in Chrome makes PDFs of much larger size than in Firefox SOLVED

Thanks, looks like you're right. Looks like I was wrong when I said that text was selectable, I was confused, it was selectable only in internal chrome "save to pdf" pdf printer option. In that case size of article is much less larger than Firefox, 169 KB. But that few additional kB is I think becau...

Printing in Chrome makes PDFs of much larger size than in Firefox SOLVED

I can't believe this. I used Firefox until I decided to remove it and start using Chrome. Everything is better except printing (to pdf). I used same printing settings as in Firefox, meaning no margins and headers and footers, landscape, same sizes. PDFs look the same, meaning text is text, image is ...

How to print pages that can't print properly? SOLVED

I think this is more general printing issue, than issue with one of your apps (it appears already in print preview in web browser). Basically some webpages can't be printed, or can only partially. For example https://www.ghacks.net/2018/03/10/firefox-60-ships-with-windows-group-policy-support/ or ht...

Not a big deal. I can still do it all manually by watching out for wikipedia articles that contain . in filename. Then renaming such files manually based on their title that is kept in saved pdf. Or use that new js file and keep saving wikipedia pages without text " - wikipedia" because i prefer sho...

Thanks, that worked somewhat. But since I downloaded other wikipedia articles with " - Wikipedia" in file name, can I do it here too?
It's good that this can be edited by us, but I hope you will make more options in app in future versions.

I printed wikipedia page containing dot in title, and so it should in file name. But file name text was saved with only text up to that dot. Example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herbert_M._Shelton was saved as "Herbert M.pdf", meaning in save dialog it only displayed "Herbert M". While it is suppo...
