If you want to share the scores you created with Guitar Pro with people who don't have the program and can't read the program's native GP5 format you need to convert it to a universal format such as PDF. Files in this format can be opened by anybody with the free Adobe Reader program, without needing to install any special music fonts.

Step 1

Launch Guitar Pro and open the GP5 file you want to convert.

Step 2

Click "File," hover over "Export" and select "PDF."

Navigate to the folder where you want to save the file, type your chosen file name in the appropriate text box and click "Save."
