Save non-savable PDF files
Authored by: palahala on Jun 17, '09 09:09:07AM

Note that the hint is about PDF Forms, for which one might want to save a copy AFTER filling in the form. I've never seen non-forms PDFs (so: PDFs that one does not change) that can be printed yet not saved. They surely may exist, but then I'd first try Rob's hint about dragging the favicon. Or, use Option-Command-A to see the Activity window in Safari, or Command-I to see the Page Info window in Firefox.

As for PDF forms: sometimes pre-filled forms (such as order confirmations or even badly coded invoices) do allow for saving, but in fact have a reference to the template which is then still only available online. If that template is not available in the future, then the saved form is useless too. To prevent that, one might want to print to PDF as well...
