You can choose to print a document to a file instead of sending it to print from a printer. Printing to file will create a PDF, a PostScript or a SVG file that contains the document. This can be useful if you want to transfer the document to another machine or to share it with someone.
Open the print dialog by pressing Ctrl+P.
Select Print to File under Printer in the General tab.
To change the default filename and where the file is saved to, click the filename below the printer selection. Click Select once you have finished choosing.
PDF is the default file type for the document. If you want to use a different Output format, select either PostScript or SVG.
Choose your other page preferences.
Press Print to save the file.
