Thread: website HTML to ODT or PDF format

  1. #1

    Default website HTML to ODT or PDF format

    I have a website tutorial series. I did 'save as - webpage complete' on each page. I need to link all those pages back together in either ODT or PDF format. I can use a website html to PDF converter, but the formatting gets garbled. Also, It does a decent job removing ads.

    Using a website copier is impractical and tends to annoy website owners.

    Libre Office Writer (ODT) and Libre Office DRAW (PDF).

    Can I import an html and export it with all the images and formatting intact through either format? So, I have to do very little fixing. It's just for my own local reference.

    if you're still using Firefox-ESR I'd recommend ScrapbookX
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...n/scrapbook-x/
    it can download linked pages has a tons of options
    then you could open the downloaded html files in libreoffice and generate whatever you want
    or try httrack
    https://software.opensuse.org/package/httrack
    it has a gui and is simple to use
    pdf is not meant to be an editable format and while there are a few pdf generators merging them would usually end with a messy look but you can try
    Print pages to Pdf
    http://printpagestopdf.hol.es/index.php/en/help.html
    it use to be on the mozilla addons site but with the death of xpcom addons it was removed it works great a direct link to the linux xpi
    http://printpagestopdf.lima-city.de/...3-fx-linux.xpi
    after converting the htm to pdf you could open them with LO and edit them

    I have used httrack. It works, but takes a long time to save all pages.


    Thanks.

    Have you tried simply using Libreoffice Writer for everything?
    It's been awhile, but it used to be you could open an HTML page in Writer and save it to whatever you wanted.

    I can only save one page at a time. Will Libre Office build a PDF off an httrack website files?
