Lesson 12. Printing > Using Other Print Options

Using Other Print Options

Mac OS X has some unique options for outputting documents that don't involve printing, but they utilize the same interface because the process is virtually the same as printing.

Saving Documents as PDF Files

In Mac OS X, it is easy for you to save a document as a PDF file. All you need to do is choose File > Print (Command-P), and then in the Print dialog, click the PDF button. This reveals a menu from which you can choose Save as PDF. Enter a name and location for the PDF file, then click Save. You can open a PDF file with Preview (/Applications/Utilities) or any of Adobe's Acrobat applications on any platform, making PDF the perfect vehicle for sharing documents when retaining formatting is important.
