Create PDFs From Almost Any App With iOS

With iOS 11 you can export documents from many different apps as PDFs using the Share function. Other apps have special save or export functions for PDF creation. But any app that can print can also create a PDF using a hidden feature in the AirPrint function.

    A great tip about making iOS emails into PDFs. Why would they hide such a feature, such that you have to know to pinch on the print preview?

    Great tip. I’ve been wanting to save mail on iOS with a PDF for a long time. Using a special mailbox hasn’t worked for me. Thanks

    I can’t find the area to pinch on the mail. There’s nothing really visual on your presentation and my print preview has nothing that I can see

    When looking a mail, I can’t find any area to expand to show printer options

    Mike: Look at 2:16. You can see I pinch out on the preview image.

    I’m sorry, I just can’t determine where you are pinching out and nothing I can pinch gives me a share icon

    Mike: Right in the middle of the screen, you can see a preview of what is to be printed. You can see a representation of page 1, and half of page 2. I’m placing two fingers close together on that representation of page 1, and then moving my two fingers apart — apart not together. Perhaps you are using an older version of iOS?
