Question: How can I create a PDF file on a Mac?
PDF files are created by converting a document to PDF format.
|Step||Instructions||Example or Picture||Notes|
|1||Double-click the document to open it in whichever program you used to create it (typically Microsoft Word).|
|2||Choose menu choice File -> Print.|
|3||From the PDF drop-down menu, choose Save as PDF....|
|4||Specify where to save the PDF file.||We suggest saving the PDF file in the same folder as the original document.|
|5||The PDF file is now ready to upload to your website.||For uploading instructions, see the Lockers and uploading section.|
Scanning a printed document
You can also create a PDF from a printed document and then transfer it to your Mac. Scan a printed document on the school's Toshiba scanner and save the resulting PDF file to a flash drive. You can then transfer the PDF from the flash drive to your computer.
The results aren't as good as the method above. For details see How can I create a PDF file from a printed document?.
