How to print or save a digital issue of a magazine
I have been a subscriber of Fine Woodworking magazine for a long time. I switched to the digital issue several years ago due to the high cost of the printed magazine. However, I hardly ever use the digital version of my subscription because the site does not let me save or print any articles or issues.
It would be useful if I could at least save the pdf of the issues that I am entitled to my computer so that I could read or print the articles that are interesting.
Right now, this subscription is completely useful and a waste of money.
Can someone help me to save the digital issues to pdf files.
Which digital sub do you have?
The one to Fine Woodworking.
Is it a web membership, or through an ipad app?
a web membership
It's different for operating systems and browsers, but the PDF article files are there for you to download. You just need to find the way to download that works on your system.
Barshfield's instructions below are good for a tablet. Also, on a computer, left-click or control-click on the PDF button and download.
Currently, we don't have downloads for the entire issue on the website.
There is no PDF button on the Digital magazine site. Their is however a Print Button but it is always greyed out. This is really ridiculous as I cannot use the digital version of the magazine until this is resolved.
Ok. So you're on the digital issue page. No, there is no print function or way of saving the issue PDF. Though, all of the articles are available for download on the individual article pages.
I have a related question, sort of....
I've been reading the magazine since the early 80's and in 2015 went with the iPad app to download the digital magazines. At some point last year all of my digital magazines disappeared from my iPad. I've been working with one of the Omeda guys and he was able to restore my issues from last year but couldn't help me with the older issues. The thumbnails are still on my iPad. I guess because my subscription is year to year they can't figure out how to get me my missing, bought and paid for, back issues.
If I could download them myself it would be awesome.
Shoot me an email and I'll have someone look at it. [email protected]
Thank you Ben, I sent you an email last night detailing my (your?) problem.
It depends on your computer. These instructions are for an iPad. At the end of the article, there should be a button that says “view .pdf.” (You need to be signed in.) Instead of just tapping that button, touch it and keep your finger on it. You will see an option to download the linked article. Once it’s on your computer, you can print it.
When you download an entire digital issue to a mobile device, it gets saved. But I don't know where. And I don't think it's as a .pdf file.
Ben is my new hero!!!
I've been working with several folks at FW and Omeda trying to get my 65 (yes, sixty-five) missing digital magazines back onto my iPad. Ben made a phone call two days ago and the issues are all back home today. Yay and thank you Ben!!!
