pdf export

pdf export seems to be pretty much the only thing missing from scrivener.
is there already a way to do this and I’m just being dense?


Pretty much any OS X app that can print can save as PDF, so Scrivener’s PDF export is done via Print. In Compile Draft, click on the Print button to bring up the print panel. That contains an option to save as PDF - basically, what would get printed to the page gets printed to a PDF file instead.

(All of the PDF files in the project templates that come with Scrivener were created this way.)

Hope that helps!

All the best,

wow, thanks!
scrivener is just awesome!

Scrivener is awesome but that’s a fairly standard OSX function. I think pretty much every Print dialogue I’ve seen since getting a Mac has this option.
