        Using Foxit Reader, I have been saving web pages as PDFs for a long time. It’s an important tool for me to research stuff. I didn’t know how to use the Print Selection feature to save just selected material, though. Of course–It makes perfect sense. And it’s been right in front of me the whole time. Thanks for the tip.

        Great information! I had never used the “More” function in Chrome print to pdf before. I’ve learned something!

        Another way to print selected text to pdf in Chrome that I use is:

        Highlight selected text > right click selection to display context menu > click “Print” > select “Destination: “Save as PDF” > “Save”. This method automatically enables the “Selection Only” option under the “More” function.

        Thanks for the article.

        I use to use AbleWord. I would highlight text, copy, paste on an Ableword document, then save document as a PDF. Ableword now glitches on some of my Win10 computers, but not all, hmmmm… For those, I do the same thing with “Trio” – highlight text, copy, paste, save as PDF…

        PDF printer:
        I prefer Bullzip PDF printer. you can merge documents and convert all kinds of documents into PDF. Just do it as if you print the document and select Bullzip PDF printer.

        You can print webpages, DOCX, XLSX, … you name it.
        BTW Windows 10 has built-in tool to do that and it works, but Bullzip offers more options.
