Creating a PDF

PDF (Portable Document Format) files allow you to capture information contained in a document and share it with anyone. A basic PDF file cannot be changed by the viewer, so information cannot be altered without your consent.

You can create a PDF from an existing Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Pages, Sheets, etc. document. There are two different ways to do this:

  • Using ‘Save As’:
    1. From the opened document go to File > Save As…
    2. In the box that opens up change the File Format to a PDF under Export Formats
    3. Click save and a new PDF document will be created wherever you had chosen to save it
    4. Your original document will still exist
  • Using Print:
    1. From the opened document go to File > Print
    2. In the bottom left-hand corner of the box, select the drop-down menu under PDF
    3. Select ‘Save as PDF’
    4. Click save and a new PDF document will be created wherever you had chosen to save it
    5. Your original document will still exist

You can also use a PDF creation software, such as Adobe Acrobat Writer or an online PDF converter.
