Hiding Header and Footer with HTML to PDF Conversion

I spent a few wasted minutes today trying to figure out how to remove the page title and url in the header and footer of a pdf document when converting from HTML to PDF while using Adobe Acrobat Distiller. This is what you’ll need to do to suppress the header and footer in an HTML to PDF conversion:

=> go to ‘File’ => ‘Open Web Page’
=> select ‘Conversion Settings’
=> uncheck ‘Put Headers and Footers on New Pages’
=> browse to your url and ‘Download’

That’s all there is to it. Hope it helps.
