Creating PDF and Word exports

You can create a PDF of a page or a set of pages. (Non-English page exports are not supported.) You can also create a Word document of the current page.

To export to PDF or Word

  1. From the Tools menu in the upper-right, select a format:
    • Export to Word to export the current page to Word format
    • Export to PDF to export the current page or a set of pages to PDF
  2. If exporting to PDF, select what template you want to use:
    • Simple to export a lightweight PDF with no cover, table of contents, or index.
      By default, the Simple template only exports the current page.
    • Standard to export a traditional PDF with a cover, table of contents, and index.
      By default, the Standard template exports the current page and all child pages.
