This feature helps add the markups or highlights and saves the screenshot as a PDF. The PDF will be created and available in the chosen location, either on iCloud or local storage.

The only limitation using this tip is that you won’t be able to save a complete webpage as PDF; however, only the visible part of the screen is saved. The rest will be trimmed out, just like the screenshot.

Bottom Line

The Safari browser allows us to save a webpage as a PDF that can be used as an offline file or shared externally using various mediums. While creating the PDF file, you can also add markups and highlights.

Similarly, you can save pages as PDFs files in Safari browser on Mac. The files can be later launched within the browser without a PDF reader on the computer.
