UI/UX updates to the Chrome extension's Hintify mode

The process of adding hints to a website is now cleaner and easier. Both the popup to add a hint as well as the hint tab have a new look, and the hint parameters are now easier to understand and edit. The Wait Time hint parameter has been renamed to Delay to convey that it adds a specified delay between the hint being executed and the snapshot being taken. Creating a site entry hint or adding an ISI snapshot can now be done with the flip of a switch.

Ability to Crawl Longer Webpages

Web2PDF can now crawl pages up to 144,000px. Long webpages will be split into multiple pages of up to 14,400px in the generated PDF, and the number of pages will be indicated in the bookmark.


Improved Site Entry Hint Functionality

Users now have more control when it comes to using Site Entry hints to access their website. Web2PDF will show you your website's true landing page first, after Site Entry hints are executed, and users now have the option to not see access-blocking modals in their generated PDF. Users can also now use Remove hints as a Site Entry feature.

Chrome Extension Error Messages
