We understand that Emma emails go away after 18 months, and we would like to be able to save a PDF version for our records. While the "Save webview as a PDF" is a nice feature - it would be extremely beneficial to be able to save as a PDF with working links , so the entire mailing is not all on one page.

Hey there -- It sounds like you're looking to retain the live links from your mailing in the PDF, is that correct? Our Save as PDF feature is built to keep your mailing to one page. Are you seeing a correlation between this and the links in your mailing? I'd love some clarification here so that I can be sure I understand your request!

Hello there! I spoke with our Product Team about this, and it isn't planned for right now. We try to release tools once we get them in a good place, measure the feedback and continue to iterate. Saving a mailing as a PDF is a new tool, and we aren't quite ready yet to create the next version of it.

We'll let you know when that work changes, and thank you for requesting this! It's really helpful to get an understanding of where you'd like our products to go next.

I was just coming here for the same exact question. We would like to embed a PDF(working) into a Cform in our website and can't do so because of this. Thank you for the valuable feedback and let your product team know this is extremely important to numerous organizations.

I will add you folks as well.  It is much more complicated to create pdf's with live links.  As noted here, we currently don't have plans in adding that feature in... but the more folks request it, the higher priority it becomes.  

Cheers!

Please add American River College to the list, too. Pre-Emma versions of our newsletter were PDFs with working links so our audience is expecting that feature in an archived version.

In addition, when saving as a PDF it doesn't save full-screen, but rather in the center of a larger screen (please see the attached screenshot to see what I mean). Is there a way to fix this?

Thank you!

Hi Rivard! I just wanted to clarify here, that we do in fact have a save as pdf feature. The request here is for a save as pdf feature with live, working links. :)

Add us to this list. To keep our newsletters short, every story has a "Read More" button. We would also like to say the PDFs need to open larger than 15% view. Maybe it is just ours because of the insane length, but it needs to open at a larger view - 50% or 75%. Thank you.

Hi there Cleveland Zoological Society, 

Just to be clear, this request is to have PDF copies with working links.  

You can currently grab a PDF copy of your mailing from the Response page for that mailing in the app.  See this link for some screenshots of how that works:

Hi Grey, thank you - that's what I was looking for. I don't know if this question should be in this thread or elsewhere, but when I click to save the webview as a PDF, it doesn't show the images as the way they looked when the email was sent. The images are very transparent. Is there a way to save the PDF mailing to look exactly like it did when it was sent? 
Hi Emma,

Thanks!
