Hi, Other than printing a web page to PDF, does the Lexis/Web research tab in TimeMatters offer a way to not only save the hyperlink but also a snapshot or capture the web page as it looked the day you saved it to TimeMatters? It seems like it only lets you save URLs, and does not capture a snapshot of the site/page. Any insight is appreciated.
If you right click inside the viewing pane (where you are seeing the web page contents) you can select create pdf. This will create a pdf file of the page contents and save it as a document record in Time Matters.

Thanks for the response. Just so I understand, when you save a URL to TimeMatters, it is in fact only saving the URL and not capturing the web page. For example, if I am on msn.com and I want to preserve/capture how the home page looks today, the only way I can do that is by printing the page to PDF? Simply saving the link in timematters will not capture and store how the page looked? is that correct?
Correct. It is storing the web site url.
You can use the built in pdf creator to make that pdf from the web record.
If i use the create PDF feature, is there a way to have it create one single PDF of all the pages that show up in the browsing history? Each one has a checkbox, but when I select them all, its not taking all of them and putting them into one single PDF. It would be really helpful if it could create one single PDF of all the links that appear in the browsing history and also if it could create a single PDF file of the entire research session from Lexis.com.
Any help is appreciated.
It does not work that way. There is an excellent video on the research integration but with all of the Time Matters.com web changes... I can't find it. Maybe someone will post it.
The Lexis form tracks the history for you and allows you to make multiple records when you find something of interest. You can right-click and create pdf to turn what is on the screen into a pdf.
This is an excellent idea and has discussed and subsequently tabled as an enhancement.
The problem is with the LexisNexis research copyright and their restrictions that surround the use of the online information.
