    i find this pluging handy, but it is a pity it does not seem to support a4. Having many images in my content, i also noted that some page breaks broke headers and images, which is less fortunate.
    still i decided to keep on using it, as a service to my visitors and students who may need or want to print materials, and i wanted rather to offer them a way to do so with a standard page numbering as a result.

    addendum: i also noted that footnotes, generated with FD Footnotes, appear as references in the text, but remain collapsed in print and pdf, and do not appear at the bottom as they do on pages.

    is it possible to fix all these things? i would greatly welcome this!

    here is an example of a page on my website where all this occurs: http://www.oscarvandillen.com/outline_of_basic_music_theory/

    Hi,

    What's happening on A4?

    We're aware of the image splits on PDF and working on a new PDF engine that will handle better.

    I've created a work ticket in our system to see about including the footnotes. Thanks for bringing to my attention.

    Best,

    Taylor

    dear taylor,

    printing on a4 my problems are similar, but afaik the plugin automatically makes a pdf in letter, correct?

    thank you very much for taking up this matter as a ticket!
    i am looking forward to it being fixed.

    very best,
    oscar

    Should have this complete and live by end of week. It will automatically appear, no updates or changes will be needed.

    The option will appear on the PDF Confirmation page. Here's a screenshot.

    If the page size is changed to A4, A4 will be downloaded.

    Long-term we'll try and detect what the default paper size should be for a user and make that the default option. We'll also use a cookie to remember the page-size selected previously and use that size by default for the next PDF.

    dear taylor,

    that screenshot looks good: the simplest solutions are often the best!
    how can it work without updates?
    i am also left with some questions about the things mentioned above:
    *will the page-break problems also be resolved?
    *will the footnote contents also be included?

    thank you very much for your kind help!

    very best,
    oscar

    The updates/changes occur on our server.

    We're going to work on the page-break issue next. Don't have enough info on how we'll solve to give an estimate of time.

    A quick way to fix the footnotes issue is to add class="print-only" to the element you want printed. Class="print-only" will print only that element and all it's children.

    So you could do something like

    div class="entry-content print-only">

    Screenshot of your page with class="print-only".

    thanks for your update.

    inexperienced with this, and before i implement this, i have 2 questions:

    1. does that class "print-only" not cause to exclude the footnotes from view?
    2. can i use this about a full page, or do i need to use this within every and each footnote?

    very best,
    oscar

    If you add to the parent element that contains your article and footer, both will be included.

    You can use on multiple sibling elements.

    Basically you can add the class to any element and that element and all it's children will be included.

    For Example...

    Article and Footer will be printed:

    <div class="print-only">
      <div id="article">This is the article</div>
      <div id="footer">This is the footer</div>
    </div>

    Article and Footer will be printed:

    <div class="print-only">This is the article. It will be printed.</div>
    <div id="random-stuff">This wont be printed</div>
    <div class="print-only">This is the footer. It will be printed.</div>
