  1. Hi,
    I'm a little confused by the terms and conditions of using the print to pdf widget, esp. the following:
    "License of Your Content to Provider. By uploading content to, submitting any materials for use on the Web Site, you grant (or warrant that the owner of such rights has expressly granted) Provider a perpetual, royalty-free, irrevocable, non-exclusive right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from and distribute such materials or incorporate such materials into any form, medium, or technology now known or later developed throughout the universe."
    Does it mean that the copyright for any webpage converted to pdf using their services rests with you?
    Please do clarify

    I'm testing the pdf widget right now on my site and am very impressed, but I do have two concerns. The first is the terms and conditions, which has already been mentioned. The second is that the wording in the pop-up box that loads when the PDF is being created is confusing. The animation and the warning not to close the window seems to confuse the user -- they don't know when it's okay to close it. Can this be rememdied with better wording, or maybe some additional code that closes the window after the PDF is created? I would appreciate a response. Thank you for what looks like a great service!

  3. Thank you for the feedbacks. We agree that the current language is a little imposing so we will revise the terms. In the current form we assure you that it is not meant to give us copyright.

  4. Anonymous,

    Thanks for the feedback. We will change the wording to:

    "...please do not close this window until your PDF is ready."

    Thanks! I think that change in wording will help a lot!

  6. Is there any chance to change [Save page as PDF] image ?

    for example:
    only text or tiny button or user's custom button.

    How good if we have this option.

    Best wishes,

    I'd love to use this as a plain text link as well instead of the button. Is it possible?


  8. jd, Myo Kyaw

    Currently you have to use the default button. We do get a lot of request for this feature, so we will implement it in the near future.

    Is it possible to have all hyperlinks, not just those starting with www and http, converted to live hyperlinks within the generated PDF, that would probably be taking Web2PDF pretty close to perfection. . . :)

  12. Hi, there is a bug somewhere, i can't render my blogger as PDF, the widget reports "Limited resources, server encountered some error..."

    I had a similar problem with - my blog's name is Zhille's guitar blog, and the single quote in "zhille's" was the problem. It messed with the code. But the developers fixed it.

    Can you please check if that is the problem. I can render other pages via you online tool.

  13. The website does not give the code for blogger platform.

    Other services gives options to get the code for various popular platform.

  14. Hi, i am exploring your Web2PDF converter. I would like to know the technical details on how it works. The data to be converted, is it send from the client browser or from the website(where the webpage is hosted) to the Web2PDF server? Thanks.
