Browser addin/addon/extension

Post by kumar » Tue Feb 05, 2019 4:17 pm

Hello,
Is there a addon for browsers (IE, Edge, Chrome, Firefox) i.e., a button in browser window that will let me convert web page to PDF directly from browser without having to print using print dialog? I mean something similar to Adobe Acrobat which lets you convert web page to PDF from within the browser itself.

Hello Kumar,

Currently we can only support IE, as most other browsers have locked down core functions that we need to do this conversion, however to that end, this article should help! https://www.tracker-software.com/knowle ... b-browsers

All the best!

Daniel,
Thanks for reply. I'm not talking about opening PDF, I'm talking about creating PDF directly from within web browser. Adobe acrobat has this feature, wonder how they did it if other browsers have locked it down. It'd be awesome if PDF-XChange can also have that feature.

Hello Kumar,

Apologies, It looks like we need to rename that article, as it is a bit misleading. Enabling the browser helper addin as detailed in that article, will place our conversion plugin into IE, and thus allow you to directly convert webpages.

We did in the past have plugins for a myriad selection of browsers, however it is not something that we can fully support anymore. I have no information beyond that.

Kind regards,
