Save as PDF - Option 2 (Requires Adobe Professional)

  1. Save as PDF

Note: This option does not work well using the Firefox browser. When Firefox is used, this process may freeze your computer. We have had more luck when printing to PDF files when utilizing Google Chrome. The following directions utilize the Chrome Browser for the step by step.

  1. When in the Analysis tab press Ctrl + P to bring up a print dialog.
  2. Next to Destination a printer will be listed. Click Change below to select a printer.

  1. The Select a destination dialog box will appear. The settings for each individual computer here will vary. Essentially, what you’re looking for is an option that indicates PDF. Your computer may have different settings than the screenshot below. If you encounter any questions feel free to call or email the ITRC for specific settings question

  1. The destination will then be updated to your selection.  From this point select Save.

  1. This will allow you to choose a destination and rename the pdf file.
