    I think this can be done from almost any app on mac, right? Very convenient. I believe this is one thing that windows users struggle with - or need additional apps to achieve the same effect. We just save as pdf's from the print window.

    I know about the print method. I seem to remember it being directly available from the menu.

    Re-looking at my contextual menu, at the bottom is "Export to PDF...".

    Didn't know that. But then, haven't read the docs in a while. (like never)
