If you want to download a new site, the easiest way is to use the wizard. Press the "Wizard" button and follow the instructions of the wizard.

Another way is to press the "New Project" button, specify the name and the Start page for the Project, and also the settings that you need. Press the "OK" button to save the project and after that press the Run button to start downloading.

Double-clicking the project will open the downloaded site in the internal browser.

Download only images from the site

Use the wizard. When selecting "File types to download", specify that only images should be downloaded.

Print the current page

Use the menu command File->Print.

Downloading a site requiring authorization

Different ways are used to download such a site depending on the authorization type.

If the authorization is performed using a web form (e.g. www.yahoo.com):

  1. To be able to download such a site, you should have the option "Options->Connections->Use Internet Explorer cookies" on.
  2. Open the site in the internal browser and log in.
  3. After that the site is downloaded as usually.

If you have to re-download the entire site without skipping the downloaded files, set "Update files" to "Always".

Downloading files from an FTP server is practically the same as from usual sites. Use the wizard and specify either the FTP server address (if you want to download files and directories) or the addres of a particualr file in the "Start page" field. If the FTP server requires authorization before downloading, specify the login and the password in "Project Properties->Site Secures".

To regulate the usage of the network capacity and the capacity of the sites being downloaded, you can specify the number of simultaneous connections to the site or to the FTP server from which the data are being downloaded. "Options->Connections->Number of simultaneous connections".
