    PBR Guide in PDF....

    Hi all,

    I can't seem to convert the latest PBR guide into PDF even with their 'convert to pdf' button.... Anyone more success? I have tried printing to PDF from Chrome and that works however the text and images get cut off at the weirdest places and some text is even cut off in the middle so not really useful.

    There is an older version out there (before Adobe took over) but I'd like to have the latest greatest for whatever reason.

    I wouldnīt try to write out with chrome to pdf, or cutepdf write to pdf.

    I tested and just selected all content from the webpage(not ctrl all) but with a mouse select to ensure getting only what is needed, copy it..and I use free WPS office fusion 2019, and do not use A4 size, itīs a web page so that may explain why your images is cut off, you may get away with it if try and change write pdf settings, but I felt it more controllable to paste in WPS office fusion.

    I used A3 format, that at least gives a decent width. then paste all the content in there, go to menu (cloud) there you will find convert to pdf.

    So wps office is a free tool and itīs a free word, excel, and powerpoint alternative..but it is all now baked in to WPS office fusion, you just start with either a spreadsheet, document or a presentation, and the software will adapt in context.

    If you can not get it to work, I could save it out for you in pdf, some formatting may be lost such as font type and font case, not sure here if I can retain it with paste special though.

    If you have office or word, you should of course be able to paste yourself and save out to a pdf from there.

    As you could see from my original post I tried that already and it looked awful.

    I have now followed Prometheus advice and although quite a bit more work, it actually looks pretty good.
