Print pages to PDF

About this extension
Print pages to PDF allows you to convert selected bookmarks (like a bookmarks folder or a list of bookmarks), open browser tabs or, if installed, ScrapBook (Plus) pages into one PDF document.
Help site with detailed information about the add-on: Add-on home page
The view of the result can be changed with different options (paper size, margins, etc.). Automatic creation of outlines is possible or it can be done manually. Headers and footers for every page can be provided.
The web pages can be pre-edited so that they contain only text or you can delete unwanted content from it (e.g., advertising).
Selection of web pages can be done via context menus at bookmarks, web page and ScrapBook list. The functions can also be accessed via the Extra menu entry or the toolbar button. In addition it is possible to move bookmarks, links and tabs per Drag & Drop into the open add-on window.
The add-on does its job without sending any content over the internet; all processing is done locally, so privacy is guaranteed. Print pages to PDF uses the open source library wkhtmltopdf, with all its power and limitations.

Wkhtmltopdf has an actual limitation, that it is not possible to supply international characters (e.g. accented characters) as parameters. This is the case for all strings that can be used in the Settings dialog (e.g. title, title of toc, header and footer text). It doesn't have any influence on the converted content of webpages.
