When viewed in my browser, I chose File > Print > Print to PDF.
Seemed to work for me without any issues.

When I do that only print the present page, not the tree.

What browser are you using ?

Adobe Acrobat:

Convert a web page to PDF

- Open Acrobat and choose Tools > Create PDF > Web Page.
- Enter the complete path to the web page, or click Browse and locate an HTML file.
- To change the number of levels in the website to convert, click Capture Multiple Levels. Enter the number of levels to include, or select Get Entire Site to include all levels from the website.

I'd start off with just 2 levels so you don't end up dragging in web pages from all over the internet.

An alternative is to use something like monolith to see if it will create a single HTML file that can be fed to a PDF converter, (online or offline).

Or, capture each page with monolith and then convert each to PDF appending to the first PDF in order.

Nope, you're right, I get the same results as you, my apologies, I misunderstood the request.

Well if it's not possible always is possible one by one and mount after.

Do you have a url where you can obtain the pdf as an example to try ?

what you want seems to be something like HTTrack, though that will only give you a local copy of the website.

FWIW I'd hazard a guess that the site is structured this way to prevent users from doing what you seem to want (for obvious reasons...)

I have solved in the old way : printing one sub webpage one by one.

I have tried also with online but only the webpage, not the website to print.

With foxit pdf editor not possible
with tracker pdf x-change not possible

Printing one by one works like a charm.
