#StackBounty: #download #print-to-pdf #file-download #user-experience Can this PDF be downloaded to internal storage?

Bounty: 50

There’s a website where information is available to view publicly and one can share that information anywhere but only by taking screenshots. I want to save it as pdf in my device for future reference.

I tried looking for ways on the web but nothing helpful found.

Here’s the link of the PDF that I want to download: https://www.ibps.in/pdfview.html?pdfNameaHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuaWJwcy5pbi93cC1jb250ZW50L3VwbG9hZHMvQ1JQLVBPLUlYdmdndi1OT1RJQ0UucGRm

Instead of saving it to my storage as screenshot it would be much more user friendly to save it as PDF for future use.

Note: It takes a long time to load if you are visiting the link via smartphone or trying to open it using Google Chrome. I had to use Safari to open the link and it opened immediately.

#StackBounty: #microsoft-excel #pdf #printing #pivot-table #print-to-pdf Excel doesn't print all active sheets to PDF

Bounty: 50

When I select sheets in a macro-free workbook (no code involed!) that each may or may not span multiple printed pages, select print to PDF (using Microsoft Print to PDF, selecting “Print Active Sheets”), all pages don’t get included in the PDF.

Specifically, the last couple of sheets are omitted from the result, which is a huge issue, since it basically renders the file useless for its purpose (= PDF report generation).

Most sheets contain one pivot table each that span mulitple printed pages (page layout is restricted to 1 page in width), the last two sheets are static one-pagers.

I can reproduce the issue consistently with this example file.
Example PDF output also available (note the two last sheets are missing). (mirror)

Environment

  • Excel version 1906 (16.0.11727.20222 32-bit)
  • Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

Things I’ve checked for/tested:

  • All pages have same print quality (was noted as a potential issue elsewhere)
  • Using regular “Save As” and selecting PDF gives the same (bad) results.
  • CutePDF writer gives the same (bad) results.
  • Printing to a physical printer prints all pages (good!)
  • If I select only the last couple of sheets, they get included in the PDF as they should. As I expand my sheet selection and print to PDF, at some point it starts “losing” pages at the end of the document.

Observations/clues:

  • Total page count varies throughout the PDF document. See page 21 and 22 in the example PDF linked above, it says “Page 21 of 31”, then “Page 22 of 30” (similar oddity can be observed with CutePDF)
  • Sheets with pivot tables that span multiple sheets seem to be the primary culprit: selecting these for printing seems to have higher likelihood of messing up the output.

I think this is mainly an issue with the print drivers (Microsoft Print to PDF or CutePDF) since printing to a professional printer works as intended, but I could be wrong.

What could be wrong, and how do you suggest I mitigate this? I need the PDF output; this is the primary purpose of the Excel file.
