    Hi,
    I installed your plugin. When we click on the pdf button then it will only show pdf file with the product link. I want to show all the product details in the pdf and then print.
    How can I manage this?

    • Anna said:

      Hi Pandurang,

      Thank you for contacting us.

      To generate the pdf/print version of the page the PDF & print plugin takes the content that exists in the post/page body before displaying it in browser (i.e. What is present in the main block on this page/post in the editing mode of this page/post).

      Sincerely

  2. Jeffrey said:

    Is it possible to change the font of the printed page/pdf? Is this a Pro feature?

    Also, color cells in html tables don’t print as color when using the print features. Is that ever possible?

    Thank you for your time.

    • Anna said:

      Hi Jeffrey,

      Unfortunately, this feature is not available both in the free and pro version of the plugin.

      You can use the styles of your theme, in order to do that please go to the plugin settings page and find “Use of theme stylesheet or plugin default style:” block. Select Current theme stylesheet.
      If it doesn’t help, please provide a link to the page with an example and describe in more detail what you want to be changed.

      Sincerely

    Hi,
    I recently installed your plug-in for printing or saving a post as a .pdf. Somehow there is a conflict with the plug-in where as I am unable to insert a picture or media into the page. Please inform me a to what to do. I love the plug-in and it works well. I was considering going with the pro version if it works.
