    I need to find a way to print emails, documents, etc. into digital PDF formats. There was an app on You Tube called "print to PDF" that is exactly what I need that was removed from the market for whatever reason. Is there anything like it in the way of apps? I have looked on the app store walking away with confusion. Please help!!!

    I am new here too but I think that PrintSharePro app turns photos and emails into PDFs. Not sure about Documents since I do not use iPad for that.

    I've had a look in the app store and there's quite a few apps that can do this

    There's no app that can do what the op is asking. Apple shut down the app that acted as a virtual printer allowing printing to PDF. Why? Who knows. I rarely make paper printouts anymore. But, I sometimes need to save a web page showing a receipt or a page that should be saved as a record.

    I'm stunned by Apple preventing such a useful and benign function. And, it's frustrating being trapped under their control. Now, I'm even starting to understand the passionate anti-Apple sentiment.

    If I understand your need correctly, I use "PDF converter" from Readdle. I can "copy" just about whatever I want, open PDF converter, select "clipboard", select convert. It will then make it into a PDF file which I then print with my print app. (I don't have an air print capable printer).

    If apple doesn't get it's act together, they will lose the market no matter how intuitive and leading their designs are. I am a huge Apple fan, but I am starting to get fed-up with Apple's inability to hear its users, and neglecting to offer some of the basic functions of today technologies.

    Hi,
    i'm lookin' for a way to print in PDF a web page that i wrote and saved on the ipad (ipad open it automatically by "Goodreader")
    I tried the app 'Save2PDF' but when i "send" the file, all the result of the javascript in the page (sums, orders etc) disappear.
    Is there someone who could help me?
    Is there a way to print a webpage (with javascript) to PDF?
    Thank you for any help.

    Thank you Bosvaark!
    I tried but jolliprint is not suitable because my html file is physically on the iPad and it hasn't an internet address (and I have to use it even when not i'm not connected) I also made a test putting the file online, but I wrote the javascript that stores the data on a cookie, and jolliprint doesn't work.

    Maybe the solution could be an app that allows me to open the html file and print pdf directly (without, at some point, "open in...") ... there is something suitable?
    (searching the web i found this one: "PDF PROvider for iPad" by Dar-Soft... do you know it? )

    Thanks again :)

    I'm using an app called Notebooks, it captures webpages, the other day I unzipped a complete web tutorial in Notebooks , and it runs as if it is from a website, it also converts to PDF, wether this will actually work I have no idea
    Perhaps if you email me the whole file I can test, or Dropbox to me
    notebooks website ...l

    I took it further and it also worked in "saveto pdf" , perhaps I'm missing your desired workflow here?

    Thank you Bosvaark!
    You are very kind :)

    I'd like to print a PDF which keeps the results of the javascript in the webpage (selected items, sums ...)
    In the pdf that you posted it does not seem to happen.
    The PDF that i wish to get is similar to this:

    pdf.jpg

    I've attached a workflow, if you have the time :eek:

    The workflow is what I thought, the final web page should run and in safari on an iPad the selections and totals should work, but with your zipped webpage, the test will not work as a PDF print is incapable of keeping the totals when they are saved to PDF,

    Are you trying this as an experiment ? and are you testing wether a person with an iPad is able to AirPrint or save from safari to a PDF?
