    PDF Formatting - help

    Tried to use cute pdf to basically print a web page , URL for said site is : How to Fix Temporary Profile in Windows 7

    I have had to adjust the settings on the cute pdf printer to make the paper size ISO A0 to fit the guide in correctly without any of the links / adverts etc over lapping the actual guide

    Is there anyway I can just get the guide to print or some way of getting rid of all the other links / adverts etc off so when I use the pdf writer of some description ( Cute pdf or the likes ) it only prints the guide

    Attached is the outputted PDF that Cute PDF created in ISO A0 Size, obviously have to zoom into about 75% or there abouts to see the guide with all the other gumph that I am trying to get rid of.

    Any suggestions on things I can do or will it be a manual task of saving each of the images from the site and copying and pasting the chunks of paragraphs into a word document and then use a pdf writer ?
    @SYNACK @Arthur or anyone else really

    Thanks

    Printing to PDF

    I selected the text no the website and when I went to the print dialog i selected to print the selection rather than "as laid out on screen"
    I used the Onenote printer to create a onenote file and save as PDF.

    Selecting just the text/images you need and then using the 'print selection' option worked for me.

    Where is the 'Print Selection' Option

    Using Firefox by the way, or do I need to use IE 8 ?

    Try the Evernote Clearly extension for Chrome or Firefox. It removes all of the rubbish bits from webpages. Example PDF attached.

    Alternatively use the Print What You Like bookmarklet to remove the things you don't want before printing.

    File > Print
    Change the Print Range option to Selection.
