    I'm looking for a HTML to PDF converter, preferably a free


    I have a "doc" folder with multi level linked html files. It is the specification of a software library.

    I would like to convert the WHOLE folder into a PDF file I can transfer to my iPad so I can access the specifications away from my desktop.

    I have tried half a dozen programs/online facilities that, either don't work off the HDD or only convert ONE level starting from "index.html".

    I CAN go to the lowest level and convert some info but NOT the whole document.

    Anyone know of a free (or trial) (or non expensive) convertor? Supposedly, there are some that cost hundreds of dollars. AND I don't know if THEY work? I don't want to pay that kind of cash and find it doesn't do this or it doesn't do that.

    I suspect there isn't a free convertor but I thought I would ask.

    Have you tried this Adobe free trial ?
    It offers to cost $14.99 per month too.

    Thanks, no as it didn't come up on my "Google".

    Is it trialable or does it watermark? I'm not at home on my iPad hence I ask.

    Will have a good look when I get home.

    I did look at it.

    I think it seems to suggest it only works from the browser NOT from a folder on a hard drive?

    I may have glossed over it as I had just tried another program that ended with a "unrecognised URL" as it was a HDD reference.

    I WILL have another look when I get home though....

    Thanks.

    I'll try it myself & see if it leaves a watermark.

    I'm in the process of installing it now.
    It says, "This may take a while".

    I got it installed.
    I created an HTML file & converted it to PDF.

    There was no watermark.

    Thanks. Did you test file have lots of levels? Sorry, not near my desktop so I can't test it myself.

    Can you click on a level and descend to the lower level, click something else and descend again etc etc?

    Thanks for your being a guinea pig.

    Only 1 level.
    You are going to have to test it yourself.

    It is easy to uninstall it if isn't what you are looking for.
