  • You can use the following classes in your HTML code to hide or remove elements from the output:
    • pdfcrowd-remove - sets display:none on the element
    • pdfcrowd-hide - sets visibility:hidden on the element
  • You can force a page break with this HTML:
    <div style="page-break-before:always"></div>
  • You can avoid a page break inside an element with this CSS:
    img { page-break-inside:avoid }
  • Class pdfcrowd-body is automatically set on the body element, you can specify PDF specific styling (since v2.20.10):
    .pdfcrowd-body h1 { font-size: 48px; }

How It Works

  • The web page must be accessible on the public Internet.
  • Only a web page from the same origin can be converted, it is not possible to specify an URL from a different origin.


The Save to PDF Link service is free, you don't need a Pdfcrowd account to use it. The free version adds Pdfcrowd branding to created PDFs. If you want to remove the branding, please consider purchasing the Domain License.
