4. Creating PDF and Other Editions > 40. Save As PDF with Mac OS X

Save As PDF with Mac OS X

Create PDFs quickly and easily from any Macintosh OS X program.

Apple built a “Save As PDF” capability right into the Macintosh OS X Print dialog box. Any time you go to print a document, you can choose Save As PDF . . . from the bottom of the Print dialog box. Unfortunately, this approach provides no options and tends to produce large files, but at least it is a quick solution to producing PDFs. This option is available at the bottom left of any Print dialog box, as shown in Figure 4-9.

If you click the Save As PDF . . . button, a file dialog box will ask you where to put the resulting PDF file. Select a location, click OK, and the Mac will print to a PDF file.
