maggioHtml5App, PDF and screen capture from selected area



  • https://www.is.fi/lehti/ seems to use maggioHtml5App. The problem is that I would like to get with 1600x900 pixel screen a selected screen capture, which maximum size would be 2450x1750 pixels and many times about 1500 × 1193 pixels.

    I can do with Firefox a screen capture from this image zoomed to its original size
    http://www.sanaristikot.net/anatomia/IS170902/IS170902.jpg

    The size of image is 1500 × 1193 pixel and I can capture it at that size because I can go over the bottom right corner both to the right and downward.

    With normal screen capture the image is scaled down to 65% of its original size.

    I can scroll over the bottom right corner in normal web sites, but not with PDF and maggioHtml5App pages, which use https://www.is.fi/lehti/.

    I could go over the bottom right corner neither with Vivaldi in pages, which show PDF or maggioHtml5App contents.

    Is there any way to beat this barrier?

    @tapio Can you download the PDF and take the screen shot from a PDF Viewer?

    I know that the desired functionality for PDF documents is in Adobe Acrobat DC for Windows and I tested it and it worked well. I can copy the capture into the clipboard and then paste it for example in Paint.

    Adobe Acrobat DC could solve my problem some way but unfortunately I failed to print pages from https://www.is.fi/lehti/ into PDF format - the company said, that I could do that, but the functionality didn't wok for me.

    BTW 1. I can't paste in to DC, because I'm not willingly to pay 18 €/ month to create new PDF documents. But would not be any solution because I would need images as PNG, not as PDF.

    BTW 2. Is Adobe Acrobat DC available for iPad? I ask that because I might some day pay iPad instead of my existing Android tablet. I know that Adobe Acrobat DC is available also for Mac, but I would not newer buy Mac.

    @tapio If you can paste a PDF into Adobe DC, then you should be able to take a screenshot and paste that into an image program. You should not need to save the PDF file. I cannot test here without registering on that site.



  • @pesala
    In fact with https://www.is.fi/lehti/ the main problem was that saving pages as PDF failed and flexible screen capture failed. I don't have any proper way to get enough good copies for my purpose.

    The main purpose is that I could solve crosswords with my tablet computer.

    With independent PDF-files, which I find from the internet, I can currently do these:

    a) save PDF with PC > load into Adobe DC > take a screenshot > paste into image program and save > send image to Google Drive > import into image manipulation program
    b) save PDF with PC > extract images from PDF/ convert PDF as PNG > > send image to Google Drive > import into image manipulation program
    c) save PDF with tablet > extract images from PDF/ convert PDF as PNG > import into image manipulation program

    Because I need seldom independent PDF-files, I use the method c) for them.
    But for https://www.is.fi/lehti/ I would collect pages with PC.

    As you see, directly screen capture would be much nicer.

    Is there any possibility (without breaking rules of this site) that I could give to @Pesala temporarily my rights to use the problematic site. I have cancelled the order of https://www.is.fi/lehti/ and it will stop quite soon.

    https://www.is.fi/palaute/ - contact form, where "IS Digilehdet ja tilaukset" concerns Digi newspaper.

    Using "Tulosta" ("Print") the browser shows this: https://aijaa.com/JYXGcd

    The magazine said that clicking "Tulosta" should give a new dialog, where I change normal printing into saving page as PDF - but I didn't get any new dialog with any tested browser.

    Report the issue to internal Vivaldi tester/dev team and give them temporary access.
    Please read How to Report a bug for Vivaldi carefully and then report the bug to Vivaldi bugtracker.

    I made that way except that I didn't thoroughly explained the issue but linked into this conversation.

    BTW. I use now Vivaldi as my primary working browser because of the nice tiling. In a Finnish conversation is also discussion about Vivaldi. Finnish people understand well English but the site is in Finnish and it might be quite difficult to login to that site.
