    I searched through other threads, and saw a couple older references but no answer...
    Are there any Print-to-PDF apps available. From what I can tell, Goodreader does not have this capability. I want to be able to "print" (save) pdf versions of webpages for receipts and for a guitar lyric/chord library.

    If there is an app that can do so, could someone please direct me to it :)

    Mac OS X has this built in otherwise there is a plug-in from Microsoft that will let you do this from Word.

    I think you misunderstood me, I mean I want to be able to do this in Safari on the iPad.

    Nope wasn't aware of it, so thanks. I will try it next time I pay a bill online. I have a feeling it won't load a page that was part of a secure login though.

    I did go ahead and download Goodreader, and apparently it can save web pages as .html for viewing offline, but not create pdf versions of a webpage opened within it's own browser :(

    Contact the developer and ask for this feature. They already have many features planned like PDF annotation, I'm sure Print to PDF for web sites should be good for them to add.

    This does it, in a way

    Basically it gives you the ability to go to a website, take a snapshot of any region of the visible screen, and post it to your note. This may be very handy for something like a chord library as you can post multiple snapshots to one note and resize if necessary. When you send a backup of the note to email it actually sends a link to a .PDF file they host. The downside is it has a small advert on the bottom of the .PDF note, and it still looks like a sheet of paper where you posted your notes on. But aside from these issues, functionally it may fit the bill. Plus it's free.

    Doesn't taking screenshots of the pages work for your purposes?

    Screenshots aren't the same resolution as a PDF (for printing for example).

    Fine for viewing and perhaps record keeping - but not optimal.

    Also - I used pdfmyurl - thanks - but unless I haven't figured something out - all it does is create the pdf - there's no way to save that pdf into goodreader, etc. Or am I missing some step?
