url address on pdf and recognized tex

Post by tomaasz » Fri Dec 20, 2019 8:33 am

HI,

I bough X-Change Editor with pdfSaver
I use pdfSaver with my browser (Opera) for print some website to pdf.

1. Is it possible to add url address on pdf ?
2. Is it possible to set pdfSaver for printing pdf with recognized text ?

Best regards
Tomasz

A little bit out of scope, because it belongs rather to the Opera browser than to the PDF-XChange printing features, but maybe still of interest:

I do not have an installation of Opera on my computer, only IE11, EDGE and Chrome.

From within Chrome you can do a right mouse click on a web-page, then Print, and select "Save as PDF" as your destination printer.

Hyperlinks and text are preserved.

See example PDF in attachment.

Hello Tomaasz and Willy,

Unfortunately, Opera operates similarly to Chrome in that its "print" function now generates "shapes" instead of "text" objects. This unfortunately means that when printing to our standard printer there is no text for us to generate links based on. If you need to maintain text and links when creating a PDF from Opera, you will need to use their browsers built in "save as PDF" function.

Kind regards,
