I am always using the webclipper to store a website as pdf (one page, clutter free). However reading the pdf on my macbook in devonthink is nearly impossible because the font size is too small and foremost, the lines are very long. The only way to read is to zoom in and not only scroll down/up while reading but also scroll from left to right.
This is strange since it does not keep the line breaks from the article.
So I was wondering if there is a way to customize the font size and the format in any way so that I also can read those pdfs on my macbbok?
A PDF is always associated with a page size. If you clip to a paginated PDF, you’ll obviously get pages sized as you specified in global preferences (A4 in your case). Now, if you select “unpaginated”, DT will have to choose a sensible page size itself. I just tried it with an arbitrary web document and got this
with a font noticeably smaller than on the original document. This was with “clutter”. After selecting “clutter-free”, I got the same problem with an even smaller (and different!) font and very long lines.
I can’t, of course, say how DT determines page width for one-page output. But apparently it doesn’t give a dime about your width setting. Why would it, since it must ignore the length setting anyway?
Also, “line breaks” do not really exist in HTML. The browser breaks the line when it has to because the text is too wide for the container. If you make your browser window wider or narrower, the line will break at another point. It seems that “multi-page PDF” respects current browser settings, while “single-page” PDF doesn’t.
You could play around with the single-page stuff combining with clutter-free. From what I saw, the latter option can result in a completely useless PDF because most everything is considered clutter. YMMV.
