Can I not save PDF files anymore?

Every once in awhile I run onto a PDF document that allows me to print it but I can't find a tab to save it. Do I need another program now, or what? I really don't want to print of 81 pages of colored text.

If you're using Adobe Reader try PDF-XChange Viewer or Foxit Reader. Adobe reader uses more resources and the others have been used and recommended by forum members. Watch that you're getting the free ones.

I am not too sure that any simple PDF viewer/reader will allow printing of selected pages.

You might consider bring the needed pages up individually then taking a screenshot - press 'Print screen' or 'PRN SCRN' next to the F12 button. Then paste it into your photo editing software or Paint if you have nothing better. Then save as an image.

Long ago I used PDFCreator and it was great, no idea why I moved away but I have just downloaded it again. It is a versatile program.

Here is a link that might be useful: Download PDFCreator from Filehippo

Thanks, no I didn't want to print the file. I wanted to keep it in my documents for reference. I will check out the links. Thanks

Some computers will have a print to file check box in print set up.

Some computers also will allow you to go into printers, and change the default printer to Print to file... and print just the pages you want to a folder.

If you have the pdf open in your browser, perhaps you can do something like: "Save Page As" from your browser's file menu?

With the pdf open in the viewable form go to the top select file then save as name it and save it to the location of your choice.

Why not right click and save it to the desktop from the site before opening? That's how I always do it. Mary
