  • Looking for virtual PDF printer driver for iPad that works with any app

    One for you geeks out there. :nerd: :nerd: :nerd:

    Is there a way to print to PDF from the iPad as if it was a virtual printer, i.e. one that would show up from any app as a printer? There was something called PDF printer driver which I purchased from the app store which used to show up as a printer from within any app, however, after one of them iOS updates (probably the one that made everything look flat and grey :mad2, it no longer shows up and I've yet to find an alternative.

    I've got a PDF creator that I can use, for example, to do a PDF from a thread on this site but, say the thread is in the members only or VIP area, I'd need to log in within the PDF app to PDF the live thread as it is toay. Now what I want is to be able to PDF stuff I've got saved with an app called 'offline pages'; content that no longer exists live online or that has since been modified, but I've got stored locally on my iPad. I have the option to print it to my wireless desktop printer but I want PDFs without having to print and scan the pages. The previous PDF printer driver showed up as a printer from within this app but thanks to the constant need to update things, no longer shows up. :rant: :rant: :rant:

    There are lots of apps in the app store but I've got neither the money, nor the time or even storage space, to be trying them all, only to find they don't do what I'm after.

    If anyone knows of a virtual PDF printer for iPad, you'll be top of my Xmas list! :cancan:

      I have a wireless printer so I can print from the iPad to it, however, I'm looking for a virtual printer driver that lets me create a PDF directly from the offline pages without having to physically print them and scan them, if you see what I mean.

          Yes, and I have a few PDF creation apps on the iPad, however, I'm looking for one that lets me save PDFs from this app in particular: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/offl...391462107?mt=8 :nerd:

            I'm the developer of the Offline Pages app you're using.

            We are adding ability to print to PDF in the very next update. The free update is literally 2 or 3 weeks away. No need to look for 3rd party solution!

            Thanks

                I'd have expected the app to be able to create PDFs so I can get the saved pages out of the iPad in the same format as they are. I've had the app for two years so it didn't occur to me that there would be such an update coming up but it's great to know. :clap2: :clap2: :clap2:
