But if you want a shareable file in a document format with all the text left intact, you could print the webpage to PDF on your phone. Here’s how to save any webpage as a PDF document on your Android phone.
If you’re trying to capture the text and image contents of any webpage on the internet as a PDF file, you’ll first need to have a PDF reader or viewer app installed.
