How do I shut off the .pdf footers?

When converting HTML pages to Acrobat files using Adobe Acrobat Standard, it automatically puts the URL of the page in a footer on each page of the created .pdf. How do I stop it from doing this?

Best answer: File → Create PDF from Web page → Settings → uncheck header/footers option.

But that’s in Pro. Don’t have Standard to test with. (Do select the tagging option.)

Response by poster: Thanks joeclark. That does indeed work. BUT, I'm creating the .pdfs from a few hundred html files saved locally on my hard drive. Doing it the way you've taught me does work, but requires that I do each file one at a time (can't select more than one file when prompted for source). If I do it via file --> create .pdf --> from file, I can do multiple files at once. Any way to get rid of the footers doing it this way?

Is Acrobat doing it, or the browser?

Response by poster: No browser open at the time. I'm doing it through Acrobat.

You can, of course, crop the top and the bottom from each page in a multi-page PDF file and get rid of them that way.

I think you’re stuck with cropping, which can be applied document-wide.
