Here’s the short version. After opening What to Do If Your iPad Gets Disabled By Too Many Passcode Entries - TidBITS by clicking on the hints link at the bottom of an article page, then turning off wi-fi, I tried to Print to PDF the article. Although the operation completed with no error message, the resulting file did not appear until I connected to the internet.
Here’s the longer version, with additional issues. I followed the hint at the bottom of a recent article to the article cited above. Following my standard operating procedure, I turned off wi-fi as I relocated with my laptop to another area of the house, where I actually read the article, which was still open in a browser tab. Thinking that the article had useful information that might be hard to come by in the situation where it would be most useful, I decided to save it as a PDF.
There were a few comments following the article that I also wanted to save. Neither printing the entire article nor selecting the individual comments followed by print selection resulted in the comments being printed. I could copy the desired comments and paste the text into BBEdit.
Does this sound right? Is there any workaround to Print to PDF while not connected? Is there any workaround to print selected comments?
Thanks for your help.
