    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 you want to export:
      • Only this page to export the current page
      • This page and its children to export a set of pages
      For example, selecting This page and its children from the home page exports the entire space to PDF.
