Print Edit WE provides facilities to edit the contents of a web page prior to printing or saving as HTML or MHTML. 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.

Note, to use the Save As HTML feature, the Save Page WE extension (version 14.0 or later) must be installed and enabled.


To start editing the page, click on the Print Edit WE button on the main toolbar, or select Print Edit WE > Start Editing on the context menu. A blue 'EDIT' (editing) badge will appear on the button.

The 'Web Style' feature is disabled by default, 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.

The 'Text Pieces' feature is disabled by default, 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.

The 'View More' feature is disabled by default, so that only elements that are normally visible are displayed. When the 'View More' feature is enabled, elements that are normally invisible are also displayed and can be selected and edited.

An edited web page can be saved as a single HTML file, which can be viewed or re-edited using Firefox or Chrome. An edited web page can also be saved as a MHTML file.

Click the 'Preview' button to see how the edited web page will look when printed. Close the preview window to return to editing.


The buttons available on the Print Edit WE toolbar are:

• Select - select all or graphic or page-break elements, or re-select elements from previous command.
• Deselect - deselect all currently selected elements.
• Hide - hide currently selected elements.
• Delete - delete currently selected elements.
• Hide Except - hide all elements except those currently selected.
• Delete Except - delete all elements except those currently selected, with varying restrictions.
• Format - apply format properties to currently selected elements.
• Text - edit a text piece or insert new text before or after element.
• Undo - undo the action of previous edit command.
• Undo All - undo the actions of all previous edit commands.
• Save - save web page as a single HTML or MHTML file.
• Text Pieces - allow selection and editing of individual text pieces.
• View More - view invisible elements in the page.
• Web Style - alternately remove or apply CSS print stylesheets.
• Preview - open the Print Preview window.
• Close - finish editing.
• Tools - access to the Fix Page Breaks features and to the Options dialog.
• Help - show the Help panel.

The Delete Except button has three menu items:

• Restricted - higher level elements retain their relative position and size.
• Without Float - higher level elements retain their relative position and size, but cannot float right.
• Unrestricted - higher level elements can reposition and resize freely, but cannot float right.

In this context, “higher level elements” means the ancestors (parent, grandparent, etc) of the currently selected elements.


The mouse actions are:

• Move - move highlight box to highlight element.
• Click - select or deselect highlighted element.
• Right-Click - inspect format properties for highlighted element.
• Drag - select all elements within capture box.
• Shift+Drag - select all graphic elements within capture box.
• Ctrl+Drag - deselect all elements within capture box.

What has inspired us?

Extore is a team of professionals who are passionate about creating extensions for web browsers. This devotion also gives us opportunity to appreciate work of other people. We get inspired by useful, open source extensions made by developers all over the world. Our strong belief is that one should share helpful add-ons with others. That’s why we’d like to present you our ever-growing list of favourite extensions that have inspired us. Moreover, as you probably have already learned, sometimes struggling for the best brings an end to the good. Talking about add-ons it often turns out that an upgrade is worse then previous version. Also it can become really tricky to get back to the beloved version of your favourite extension. That’s why we’re going to make not only the latest, but all versions of our favourite (and we hope yours too) add-ons available for download. No more compromises, just stick to the version you really like!
