        I’ve been collecting the newsletters in a folder in my inbox.

        Is there a way to save the newsletters at to PDF without the right column?  I tried figuring the HTML code / load just the frame of the newsletter, but haven’t been able to figure that out (I am a NOOB!).

        Any advice for the best way to print the newsletters to PDF to build a library of these?

        Printing the emails are a little better, but they have the header to / from / etc.  and the links are longer than need be (they go through the mail sending service then resolve to where they should go. Over the long term, I think it’d be better to link to the actual target in case the mailing service changes / stops linking older articles.

        For what it’s worth”: I receive the Newsletter by email and, at least with my Mac, all I need to do is open the email with the Mac-native mail client “Mail”, that then shows its full contents on the screen, chose “Print” in  the”File” menu, in “Print” choose “PDF/Save as PDF”, click on that and it is done. Maybe one can do the same in Windows with one of the email clients that work with it.

          One can print from Gmail to PDF on any platform.
