Create Single Document (PDF/WORD) With Links From Multiple Webpages

Hey Guys -

I've got a question (obviously.)  I've used various tools to save webpages to PDF before as well as other tools to capture websites locally.  What I'm trying to do is something sort of in-between.

I'd like to create a document from the top level of a guide which includes multiple webpages (~3 links deep) sequentially listed.  When I try capturing the table of contents with extensions and clicking on a link, it attempts to open the link in a browser. Here's an example of what I'm talking about:

I've got a local folder full of HTML files (can access it online, too) plus a couple of folders with HTML files.  Opening index.html in a browser displays the table of contents.  I can click on any of the topics and it will then open the cooresponding html file.  

What I'm wanting to do is capture this entire guide into a single Word / PDF file.  All html files would be in the file.  Therefore when opening the Word / PDF file, the same table of contents would show as well as the links.  Clicking on the links this time would simply jump down to the appropriate section instead of trying to open a local webpage.

Hope this makes sense.  Any ideas?  Thanks!

Hi Ben,

Two ideas:

(1) HTML2PDF Pilot:
http://www.snapfiles.com/get/html2pdfpilot.html

It has a GUI interface that can process individual files or an entire folder. It also has command line support for use in batch files and/or programs/scripts.

(2) A-PDF HTML to PDF:
http://www.a-pdf.com/html-to-pdf/

This also has both GUI and command line interfaces (also has a Wathced Folder feature, but it doesn't sound as if you'll need that).

They both offer free, 30-day trials. Give them a spin and see if one works for you. Regards, Joe

The only thing I can think of that would do that is Adobe Acrobat.
