How can I create PDF’s from Easy Blue Print?

Some PRO users have asked about creating PDF's. We actually have a method of creating PDF's, which will be useful not just to PRO users, but to anybody who has a program that can print directly to a printer.

If you do not have already Adobe PDF Converter (this is not the same program as Adobe Acrobat) installed on your computer you can get free PDF writer called Cute PDF.

Cute PDF Writer installation is a 2 step process.
  

First, you will need to install GhostScript, the converter that is used by the Cute PDF Writer.

Second, you will install the Cute PDF Writer itself.

Once you have the PDF writer installed you can save your floor plan drawing as PDF files.

You DO NOT have to run any application. Just print your document using Cute PDF Writer (the printer) to get PDF output.

Go to Scaling and Printing tab.
 
Click on the print "Preview" button to see the layout. You can adjust the size and position of the drawing before exporting to PDF.
 
Once you are satisfied with the layout click on the "Print" button.
 
Click on the "Preferences" button.
 
Click on the "Advanced..." button. You can further set other options that are appropriate for your printer. You can choose a paper size, a print quality etc. Especially if you want to take the PDF to your printer/copy center.

To start off with, you might want to just leave the options alone.
 
Click on OK until you get back to the Print page. Now, instead of printing to your ordinary paper printer, pick the "CutePDF Writer". Make sure that the "Print to file" checkbox is NOT checked.
 
You will see a pop-up window asking you where you want to save the file.

Save the file to a place where you can easily find it. You should now be able to open up the PDF and see a copy of your drawing.
