Print Edit WE provides facilities to edit the contents of a web page prior to printing or saving. Elements in the web page can be formatted, hidden or deleted and text can be edited or inserted. Unwanted content, such as adverts and sidebars, can easily be removed.
Print Edit WE is an alternative full-feature no-restart version of the well established Print Edit add-on.
Print Edit WE is implemented using the new WebExtensions API and is available for both Firefox and Chrome with identical functions and user interfaces.
Click on the Print Edit WE button on the main toolbar (or select Print Edit WE > Print Edit on the context menu) to create a copy of the web page and to prepare the page for editing.
Now make any necessary adjustments to the web page before editing, for example, selecting an internal tab within the page.
Click the Print Edit WE button again (or select Print Edit WE > Start Editing on the context menu) to show the Print Edit WE toolbar and start editing the page.
On entry into edit mode, any active elements (such as animated graphics) are disabled and are shown as grey vertically striped blocks.
By default, the 'Web Style' feature is disabled, so that the page displayed looks similar to how the page would look if printed normally. When the 'Web Style' feature is enabled, the page displayed will look similar to how the page looks during normal browsing.
By default, the 'Text Pieces' feature is disabled, so that only whole blocks of text can be selected. When the 'Text Pieces' feature is enabled, individual pieces of text can be selected and edited and line breaks are displayed.
An edited web page can be saved as a single HTML file (including images and styling) that can be viewed or re-edited using Firefox or Chrome.
Click the 'Preview' button to see how the edited web page will look when printed. Close the preview window to return to editing.
