Trouble converting an article to a PDF
« on: December 23, 2014, 08:41:58 am »
I usually don't have an issue but when attempting to create a PDF from a nytimes.com article, the end result is in a different language/symbols and strange text instead of English. Is there an issue with my Adobe? Quick fix?

More than likely, it is a coding issue on the NYT page which may not allow the saving as a PDF file.

Try this method, it is a couple of steps, but might work:

Go to the page with the article, at the top of the browser window select "File" and then "Save as..."

Then select "Webpage, complete (*.htm; *.html)" from the drop down menu.

Once that has been saved, open the file and convert to a PDF from there. Hopefully that may work for you.
