6.4   Web page format

When you import an entire Web page, EagleFiler can save it using the following formats:

Bookmark
A .webloc file that stores the URL and page title. This does not save the contents of the page, thus conserving disk space but restricting your search options. You can also edit (and update) the URL in a bookmark.
PDF
PDF files preserve the text, formatting, clickable links, and images. Web pages containing HTML frames cannot be saved as PDF files; when importing such pages, EagleFiler will save them as Web archives.
PDF (Single Page)
As above, except that the PDF is formatted as a single page and with tighter margins for easier on-screen viewing. For best results, set EagleFiler or your PDF viewer to display in “Single Page Continuous” mode. Printing PDFs in this format can be a problem, however, because the PDF page will generally be much larger than a sheet of paper.
Plain Text
Plain text files include the text content of the page, with no formatting or images. Thus, they make very efficient use of disk space.
Rich Text
RTF files preserve the text, formatting, and clickable links, but not the images.
Rich Text With Images
An RTFD package that preserves the text, formatting, clickable links, and images.
Web archive
Web archives preserve the entire page contents in its original format (HTML, CSS, images). They’re slower to display than PDFs, but you can resize the window to change the displayed width, and you can adjust the font size (often more useful than zooming a PDF). Web archives can be viewed on Macs (using Safari) and iPhones, but currently there are no Windows or Linux applications to display them.

You can use bookmarklets to temporarily override the format chosen in the preferences.
