Since the beta 1 this has been bothering me enormously. When I wake up I like to email myself articles to read offline on the train on my way to work

The really nice thing about Reading Mode on iOS 9 is the possibility of personalization:

But once you SHARE and tap Mail, you only get the link, like when you share without being on Reading Mode:

If somebody here could report this at the Apple Developers forum, that would be great!

Thanks a bunch!

PS. I do wonder if that was a choice on their part to remove the content when sharing, it doesn't matter if Reading Mode is on or off, I'm curious about your guys input on this as well.

Report it at bugreport.apple.com

You don't need to make a new thread for everything. Use the beta 2 discussion thread.

Doesn't the reader mode already save the articles (can't quite remember if it does)? If not, it sounds like something other than email sharing would need to be used for these types of off-line reading purposes.

Open the webpage in Safari, activate Siri and say "Remind me to look at this later".

She will create a reminder with the URL embedded, problem solved. This also works for messages and other iOS apps.

He wants to save the font and font size changes that can be made in the Reader mode. iOS 8.3 does this.

Is this like when you add to your reading list and make it available offline? Because that never worked quite right to me, many, many times I'd later find that the page wasn't available for reading offline after all.

Thanks for the tip, though. Really great. I use Siri a lot, it helps enormously to multitask.

No, unfortunately I doesn't!

Any suggestions.

The Siri thing Armen suggested is great, but sometimes I read in a different iPad that I carry around, so... I really hope it's a bug. Do you guys think they removed the function?
