Meet the Print pages to Pdf Developer

Why was Print pages to Pdf created?

During my various investigation in the internet I got a long list of Bookmark folders that I am using on a regular base. But as expected, some of the links are not longer valid or updated their content so that some Informations were not longer available.

So my next aproach was, instead of using Bookmarks to use AddOns to save the pages locally (e.g. Scrapbook Plus). That worked fine, but I always have to use a Browser, sending results to other persons is complicated, printouts are sometimes very ugly (often caused by the poor printout function from Firefox).

So I started looking for an AddOn that gives me the ability to print Bookmarks(folder) or mnimum all open Browsertabs in one Document. But I wasn't successfull, there are AddOns on the market, but all of them had some constraints for my use like: Documents will be sended to an external server over the Internet, poor Quality, Text will be Graphik, sets of Webpages will not be printed into one Document, not possible to add Metadata (Web Adress, Date, etc.) to the output etc.

That was my motivation to develop this AddOn.
