PDF is a mobile document format standard that works on all devices. Extremely convenient for hosting and sharing various websites and documents.
1/iPhone and iPad (iOS)
With iOS 9, Apple built this feature into every iPhone and iPad. To print a web page or a PDF document:
- First open it in an application. Touch the “Share” button below the picture:
Scroll through the list of icons at the top and click the “Save PDF to iBooks” option.
You can now open iBooks to access the PDF file. From iBooks, you can email PDF files or share it to another place. These PDF files can also be synced with iTunes so you can get them on your computer in the unlikely event that you regularly sync your iPhone or iPad with iTunes. They will be in your iTunes Book Library after syncing.
In any application – from desktop Windows applications to new Windows Store applications – just select “Print” in the options menu. You should see “Microsoft Print to PDF” appear in the list of installed printers. Select the printer and click the “Print” button. You will then be asked to provide a name and location for your new PDF file.
In previous versions of Windows, printing PDFs was quite complicated. It is not integrated into the operating system, so you may have to install a third-party PDF printer application.
However, some applications have built-in PDF-in support. For example, in Chrome, you can choose the “Print” command and select “Save to PDF” to print to PDF. LibreOffice can also export documents to PDF. Check out the application you are using to see if it can do this without any additional software.
