After the last comment I wrote here answering to another user, one of the developers contacted me to let me know that version 3.3.4 solved most of my problems… but YOU HAVE TO USE THE EXTENSION and not the bookmarklet. As I was using the bookmarklet because of some problems in the past with the Safari extension I didn't realize the full potential of the upgrade.

Now Web Snapper works in pages that require log in (but you have to login first and be in the page you want) because it captures the whole code of the page and puts it in an SQLite database while it creates the PDF, so it works with most of the authenticated pages I need to capture (I have tried quite a few).

Also, the extension works really well, so I am forgetting about the bookmarklet altogether.

So, to wrap up the comment I made earlier here, I have to say that Web Snapper works again like it did in the PPC era. I really liked the app even some of the quirks it had afterwards, but now I completely happy with it again.

Thank you to Tasty Apps for their great software and cheers from Spain.

The whole point of an app like this is to save a web page so you can read it later right without internet connection? if your signed into a web page that requires a membership sign in, web snapper saves the page BEFORE you signed in making it impossible to read the page now that your not connected. Pointless app, you might as well bookmark your page.

Hi Jacques, one of the uses of Web Snapper is saving a page for offline reading, although there are more. Snapper captures a page exactly as you see it in the browser, for printing, editing, designing... and reading if you want. Regarding having to sign in or not, once you capture a page (even behind a login screen) Snapper will save it for you in PDF or images formats. You can read the page if you are connected or not... always. The result is just a PDF file, or an image file, no internet involved. Best results are always achieved using the browser extensions for Safari, Chrome or Firefox. I am sorry for the misunderstanding, please contact us at customer-service@tastyapps.com and we can discuss this further! Alberto.

Works OK for the price. It would be nicer if (1) the pdf downloaded with just one click, instead of also requiring that you click on the little green arrow icon; (2) you could save pages from database displays, as with PeopleSoft or other Oracle-like things. Right you get only the login page. It's possible other utilities like this have these features, but they are very expensive.

Hi Kranboll,

good news! Web Snapper can already do what you are asking for! You can check our new tutorial here: http://www.tastyapps.com/websnapper-tutorial/

Basically, you can enable the "automatically save them to my default location" option, and you will get 1) solved. As for 2, you can install Web Snapper's Safari, Google or Firefox (since 3.3.4) extensions. These extensions are really "smart" and can capture pages that are behind a login screen, such as the ones you mention.

Please follow up with us at customer-service@tastyapps.com and we will get you all set up.

Regards,

Alberto.

I've searched high and low for a web page PDF generator that can actually capture everything that is showing in a browser window, and I had high very hopes for this.

This does have a simple user interface, and is an easy plug-in to Safari. Those are wonderful things.

Sadly, the ubiquitous disqus commentary used on many web pages somehow disables full commentary printing (Ver.3.3.3) from capturing the commentary at all. Even when "more" is clicked on each and every comment to show the complete comment, this app simply cannot print everything there. I found no way of resolving this. (Would have also liked a FireFox plug-in since I'm certain Chrome is stalking everything one does on the web)

We really need a pdf generator that can actually capture an entire web page accurately given what is displayed in a web browser. This must be hard because I could not find a solution anywhere.

Sorry you are having trouble - send us a couple of URL's and we'll take a look. We have encountered pages that use some "non-recommended" code in comments sections...we have been able to use a work-around to get those in some cases.

Hi, I know what you mean, but there is no easy way to solve it. Prior versions of Web Snapper (the old 2.x series and I think the first 3.0 in the old 10.5 PPC version) could snap everything because it was an actual plug-in that injected code in Safari and really snapped the code as Safari was "seeing" it.

But Apple changed the rules and plug-ins are forbidden, so the only solution is "extensions". The problem with extensions is that they are limited in the scope of things that can be done by the extension itself. In the case of Web Snapper, the page's URL is just sent to the Web Snapper application so it loads the actual page again and there is another engine that interprets the page code. This means that cookies of that page that are saved in Safari (like when you have all comments shown) do not apply to Web Snapper. Also, pages with a secure connection or that need login, do not load directly in Web Snapper because you need to login again.

The plug-in in the past could deal with all that, but now it is not possible just because of the way extensions work. The only option in some cases is to open the site in the integrated browser window in Web Snapper, login into it, go to the exact page you want, set it like you want it and then snap the page. But even this option won't work on https connections for web receipts you are just watching in Safari, because you are not able to recreate the session in Web Snapper's integrated browser.

I have tried all snapping options that I could come across after the plug-in/extension transition but Web Snapper is still the best option I could find… and NO, I AM NOT ASSOCIATED WITH THEM IN ANY WAY, just a happy customer.

Cheers

The best way to capture long web pages without breaking them with pagination, or to save in one PDF those multipage web tutorials or articles. For me it is a basic tool in my web browsing.

I have been using since the original product (Red Snapper) and it has worked well except in those periods of OS version changing. Lately it had some trouble with Mountain Lion and Mavericks, but this latest version (3.3.3) is working great.

Worth the price if you browse the web for info retrieval or archiving.

I was using Paparazzi, which was good, but I've found Web Snapper to be more than worth it's money.

I work in public relations and we often need to send screen grabs to clients, so I use these sort of programs a lot.

Easy to use, you're able to 'snap' multiple pages at once and then download almost all at the same time so you can edit in Preview or something more powerful.

What's even radder is their customer support is on it. The few times I've needed it, I've received email answers in under six hours... usually much less.

Props to these guys for making my life easier!

I'm trying out version 2.8 and a page I tried to capture showed as blank in Acrobat. I opened it in Preview and could view it fine. In a search I saw that this problem was supposedly fixed in a previous version, but it's still a problem. Any ideas?

Hi there! Yes indeed, that is in fact an Adobe bug... Above a certain page length, Adobe Acrobtat just does not display the document! It's a known issue with Acrobat. If you need to share your PDFs with Acrobat users, you will, unfortunately, need to use the pagination option and break your PDF document into Adobe-manageable pages...

Sorry!

I tried this out but decided not to purchase. Followed directions to delete Ap to uninstall. Also deleted prefs but nonetheless, the button in the Safari browser will not go away. The button non-functional but still there. I have done a thorough search for it and looked at all plug-ins and can't find it. Just a warning that if you try it out there may be a troublesome modification of your browser.

Once installed you are unable to select Customize Toolbar in Safari. Tried to contact developer, and website give no means of doing so. There is no uninstall feature so I hunted down the pieces to remove them and return Safari back to normal.

I love the potential of this plugin, but I had my Customize Address Bar menu item disable, as well. I emailed the developer today (2/14/2007), and received this reply from him within a few hours (which has resolved the problem for me):
=======

Do you perchance have SafariStand installed on you machine? We've discovered recently that there's an incompatibility between SafariStand and Red Snapper on some user's machines. We're working with the developer of SafariStand to come up with a fix for this problem. For now, temporarily disabling one or the other will fix the problem, and allow you to modify the toolbar.

Red Snapper can be uninstalled by removing "Red Snapper.bundle" from the "/Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins" folder, emptying the trash, and restarting Safari.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused you.
