How to Save an InDesign File as a PDF
By Chad Buleen
Using InDesign requires a considerable amount of expertise to create a magazine page, layout a newspaper article or design a flier or poster. In contrast, it takes a considerably smaller amount of skill and expertise to save the InDesign file as a PDF. Saving the file as a PDF allows others without InDesign to view your file.
Open the InDesign document that you want to save as a PDF.
Select "Export" from the "File" menu.
Select "Adobe PDF" in the "Save as Type" box.
Click "Export." The InDesign file is now saved as a PDF. By default, the file is saved in the same folder as the InDesign file.
