Apple recently released version 1.2 of its free Safari Web browser, adding a number of enhancements -- but NOT among them the long missing-in-action ability to directly display PDFs inline, a once-built-in feature Macintosh users enjoyed prior to the move to OS X. Despite assurances, Apple and Adobe have yet to collaborate on returning the now-Windows-only option for natively viewing PDFs inline to Acrobat 6 after the feature vanished during the Acrobat 5 timeframe. A third-party developer offers a free PDF Browser Plugin that provides some of the same functionality.
An update to another third-party Mac product, Saft, adds [among a number of new features] to Safari the ability to "export a web page as one whole page PDF," according to the shareware application's ReadMe file. Using v.6.0 of Saft with Safari v.1.2, one can choose the Export option from a contextual menu to generate a PDF file.
After a test drive of the demo version, we discovered that the feature works exactly -- and literally -- as described. A local Web page, one that when first converted with Acrobat 6's Web Capture tool produced a five-page PDF, with Saft resulted in a long, one-page PDF document, as shown below:
In this case, viewing the PDF inline may not be desirable.
OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
