If it is in Free 2D, just do a Save As and change the Save As Type to PDF.  Then save to folder and then e-mail.

Hi Jason

As far as I know frees2D doesn't support "save as pdf".

However there is an easy solution. Download some freeware such as pdfcreator, this is a pseudo printer.

To create a pdf click print, then chose pdfcreator from the list of available printers, then instead of a hardcopy you get a pdf.

I use this method everday and it works a treat. There are many different freeware packages if you don't like pdfcreator.

 

Cheers

Pete

It's possible Windows 10 already has a "Microsoft Print to PDF" option when printing.  I have it but not sure if it came with Win 10 or Office 365/2016.
