I have a drawing that someone else created and I need to save it as a pdf file so I can view the legend more clearly. I cannot find a "save as" option.
Are you using SolidWorks or DraftSight (seems like DraftSight)
In DraftSight select Export > PDF Export
Here's a couple of suggestions, both will allow you to create a pdf from about any document, SolidWorks, AutoCad, MS Office, etc.
1. Install a pdf reader. We use Foxit Reader which is free. It installs a "pdf printer" which means when you print a document, a print to pdf option is available in the list of printers.
2. Another option is Bluebeam Revu for Cad. It functions much the same way. It is not free but is relatively inexpensive. It is a pdf editor primarily but we like the batch print functionality. That allows us to create a list of documents in SolidWorks (and other Cad) and batch print to pdf files. We have used that function to create hundreds of pdf files at a time.
Hope that helps,
If you're on Windows 10, printing to PDF is native functionality now.
Do you have the print to PDF option?
Do a save as and change the "Save as type" from "Drawing (*.drw,*.slddrw)" to "(*pdf)".
Tony, this is how I've typically done it for a number of years. Some people here still use 'print as pdf', which I think just creates more steps than a simple save_as.
