Apple Newbie With Safari Question

Posted:
in macOS edited January 2014
This past April, after using windows for 11 years, I decided to try a mac.

I'll admit to being a bit overwhelmed at first, but I stuck with it and I'm now very

happy I made the change.



I play fantasy football on yahoo. Last year I wanted to document the entire season.

IE: Draft results, weekly matchups, etc.

I wanted to copy & paste the individual pages & put them in folders.



When I tried this with explorer it didn't work.

Later on I tried a different web browser & I was able to save the individual

pages exactly. I forgot the name of that browser



So my question is simple. Is there anyway to save pages exactly as they appear

using safari ?



Thanks in advance !!(

    I just remembered the name of the web browser I used to save web pages.



    Maxthon

    Best way I find is to use Paparazzi. Though the dev. has yet to fix it to work on Leopard, it crashes on launch currently.

    Saving them as webarchives will store them as they are shown online - this is the default save format. If you want certain parts, you can often just drag over a portion of a web page, copy and open Textedit and paste into an rtf document. Sometimes it loses the formatting but it's usually ok.

    Yup, file: save as. Or cmd+S



    However, the files that that saves can only be opened by Safari itself I believe.



    Camino and Firefox will save it as an html page, but I'm not sure that always works well.

    2 more options:
    1. Print -> save as pdf

    2. command+shift+3 - saves your screen as an image file (on the desktop)

    How does that snap long pages though? I believe that's what he's asking.

    Thanks for the replies!



    I'm still not able to copy the pages exactly, but I do

    appreciate all your suggestions.



    For now, I'm just going to save the pages as archives

    & hopefully find a solution later.





    Thanks Again
