Prior to iOS 11, a screenshot was just a screenshot, and you could not do much with your iPhone. Then came the screenshot editor, a powerful tool that Apple iOS added with all kinds of useful markup tools. Apple's screenshot editor is even more powerful in the iOS 13 update, and one of the best new features is the ability to capture an image of an entire web page in Safari.
However, there is a catch. Unlike normal screenshots, which are saved as PNG files, full web page screenshots are instead saved as PDF files. This is already possible in older versions of iOS if you're sharing the "Create PDF" action in iOS 1
You can not save PDFs in your Photos app, but you can save them anywhere in your Files app, B. a folder on the On My iPhone local drive The same goes for the older Webpage-to-PDF actions, only iOS 13 can incorporate the functionality directly into the screenshot utility for a more natural experience, with the markup tools immediately displayed instead of behind Another button to hide.
The Webpage to PDF Converter is a great way to put together pictures and important how-to articles (wink, wink), short stories, and other long reads on your device or in iClou d. So you can check them out offline at a later date. While iOS 13 is still in development, you can now try it in the beta version of iOS 13.
Step 1: Take a Screenshot
Use the Volume Up + Page button on a web page in Safari Click on Face Detection Devices, on the Side + Home button on touch detection devices, or on AssistiveTouch, to take a screenshot of the content of the site on the page.
At the bottom left, a thumbnail of the screenshot is displayed. Tap it before it disappears Otherwise, you will not be able to see the screenshot on the whole page. When you tap the preview, the screenshot editing tools appear.
Step 2: View and edit full-page screenshot
At the top of the screenshot Editor displays the Screen and Full Page tabs. The former is the standard screenshot, which shows exactly what was displayed on the screen when you took the screenshot. The Whole Page tab automatically merges the entire web page from start to finish.
A scroll bar appears, highlighting the currently displayed section. Tap and hold on the selected part and move it up and down to scroll through the full-page screenshot. To edit the length of the screenshot, tap the blank icon in the top toolbar and make the necessary adjustments.
For the moment, you can not zoom in to get a precise crop and shrink it right away. The screen only enlarges the image size, but the crop remains in place, effectively cutting out important parts of the image. However, you can make small sections lengthways and wait for the image size to change slightly, and then continue to increase accuracy. When done, click Done.
You can then make any other desired markup changes, such as: For example, label the image, enlarge parts, add shapes, draw on it, etc. There are also new opacity and ruler tools in iOS 13.
Due to the length of the image Unfortunately, you can not save screenshots and file types in photos. However, you can save it as a PDF in the file app. Once you've edited the full-page screenshot, touch the Share icon at the top right to bring up the Sharing sheet (also known as activity view).
Here you have the possibility to share the PDF file via news, AirDrop and e-mail. to name a few. In the action list below the apps, you can tap "Save to Files" to do just that. When the file modal is displayed, tap the name of the PDF file at the top of the thumbnail to rename the document as needed. Then select a destination, either "On my iPhone" or "iCloud Drive" or a folder in one of these options, and click "Save."
Currently, you can not seemingly store in the third-party cloud storage services.
Tip: Whether you're editing the full-page screenshot or if you're not on "Done" will display an action sheet with the options "Delete screenshot" or "Save PDF to files". The latter is a shortcut to using the Share sheet to save directly to the Files app.
To view the full-page screenshot, open the file app and locate the PDF file just like any other PDF file. Tap to see it in its entirety. With the markup tools you can draw on the icon in the top right of the PDF file and share the file, copy, print, save in Dropbox and much more using the "Share" icon in the lower left corner.
Screenshots of pages currently only seem to work in Safari, so third-party browsers like Chrome and Firefox may not work and no in-app browsers like the one built into the Reddit app. Let's hope that this change will work system-wide in apps such as Messages, WhatsApp, Firefox, and others in the future.
