This extension adds two new buttons to your Gmail interface. One orange PDF button and one blue PDF button. The orange button can be used to generate distraction-free PDF documents and the blue one generates a normal PDF document. It is also possible to press the toolbar button (action button) to convert multiple emails to PDF at once. For bulk conversion, you need to select a few threads first.


  1. The orange button is called the "simple" mode of operation. In this mode, your emails are reformated and all the images, lines, and any other distracting elements are removed from the document before the PDF file is generated. This is useful to generate PDF for fast reading.

  2. The blue button is called the "normal" mode of operation. In this mode, the "window.print()" function is called and the generated document is in the standard format.

  3. This extension does NOT send your documents to an external server for conversion as this violates the user's privacy. The extension uses a local JavaScript library called jsPDF for all its conversions.

  4. By default, no image is attached to your document if the "simple" mode is selected so that there would be no image fetching from remote servers.
