Export Directly as PDF

LibreOffice gives you a lot of control over exporting a document through the PDF Options dialog. However, if you want to quickly export a document to PDF in a few clicks, LibreOffice provides a way you can do this.

The way is through the Export Directly as PDF dialog. This is only available in Writer, in the Export as sub-menu in the File menu. There is an Export item in the File menu of Writer and several other applications that has a PDF option, but after using it, it launches the PDF Options dialog.

  1. Click the Export Directly as PDF item in the Export as sub-menu.
  2. In the dialog that appears, PDF will already be in the File type drop-down menu.
  3. You also can give the export a new name and choose a different location.
  4. Click the Save button.

You will be returned to the document that you used to create a PDF.
