    Problem with "Save as PDF" on Safari.

    I've just realized every time I do a copy and paste on the HTML web page, it inserts some redundant characters which defeats my purpose of being efficient.

    I have been doing that on Guide: Creating Safari Bookmarklets and it frustrates me when it doesn't work and sees no problem at a glance.

    For example, when I copy for Save as PDF which is "javascriptdf_url=location.href;location.href='ht tp://pdfmyurl.com?url='+escape(pdf_url)". From here I notice there is a carriage return inside "http". I get "javascriptdf_url=location.href;location.href='ht%20tp://pdfmyurl.com?url='+escape(pdf_url)" when I paste.

    Anyway, I have corrected it. I did a "Save as PDF" on Guide: Creating Safari Bookmarklets. The URL address on the Safari browser seems to indicate it is doing it. I suppose what is on the Safari browser now is a PDF file of the same web page. However, how can I save this PDF document for viewing later.

    After you click on a PDF in Safari. Wait a second to make sure it is fully loaded.

    1) Scroll to the top.
    2) Tap the PDF once.
    3) Look at top right area for "Open in iBooks".
    4) Click on that new button.

    That will move the PDF to your iBooks for offline viewing. I probably have over 30 board game manuals loaded that way in the last few weeks after my wife showed me that feature.
