Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
Is there any free software that allows me to save webpages as a virtual book? Which I can organize by chapters etc. Instead of copy pasting everything to word etc.
The methods you mention here work, but leave a lot to be desired for anyone who is serious about capturing web content and using that information to research specific topics. For this you really need tools that not just let you capture and save content, but let you add notes, edit the content, organize it (trees, tags etc.), quickly find it again and potentially share it with friends and colleagues.
There are a variety of applications available which do this very well, including our product Surfulater. I won't start rattling off all if its features here but suggest that anyone who is interested grab our free trial from http://www.surfulater.com And please do contect me if I can help with anything.
Our product CaptureSaver is going to change all that. In fact, CaptureSaver will do you one better.
If you can see it on the internet, you can use CaptureSaver to store it in your own personal, off-line, information storage area -- or shall we say,library!
Please check out it at: http://www.capturesaver.com/
I am trying to copy a page I made myself so that I can read and edit the text areas later.
I made an interactive web page that has tons of text areas and boxes that can be edited from the same page. Is there anyway to actually copy the exact content?
P.S. I was successful in "saving as" with firefox, but the place I created it for uses Internet Explorer, where I haven't gotten to work yet.
Thanks so much for the "print to pdf" tip. Much better than "Shift Print Screen". Thanks!
After reading Leo's answers to an awesomely bewildering array of questions for a couple of years now, it seems to be a miracle that the machines we call "computers" actually work at all. These infinite variations of just about everything so far conceived.
I accept that timing the competition, turf guarding, copyright and such all enter into this complexity, but I wonder if there isn't a better way out of, and away from, all of these endless questions that are created each time something "new" is created?
These are such a Babel.
Yes, I've read the article at the top of the page, that's what has provoked this question.
PicPick--Google it--It is a screen capture software. If all you are trying to do is save a statement for archival purposes you can use this to capture the page as an image. It will even auto scroll the page for you. You can save in multiple image formats as well. I use it regularly for bank statements, bills paid online, etc.
thank you, the following worked for me:
tried the control + a on page i wanted to copy and THIS page and NEITHER time did it work - i have never ever worked on any computer where those types of commands actually ... like the oxymoron they are called ... function.
Not just helpful responses but in clear easy to follow language. Giving an idea of how things work. Even if the info is a bit off for a specific situation, you can now google for a better search and find what you exactly need. A very smart site. I'm very savvy, but couldn't match Leo.
Yet I have to add something to this post. Since 1995 I've been downloading everything on a site. css, pics, everything. Locally it looks the same and has the same code. Nothing works perfectly but these site down-loaders are a necessity. Do a search like "Save entire website", and find software like HTTrack or one of the many others.
Also this site would be friendlier if "preview" of a comment wasn't wiped. Not a biggie.
To post a comment on "How do I copy an entire web page?", please return
to that article's main page.
