Making a PDF file

Karen Berinsky


Sent from Mail for Windows 10
Can anyone tell me how do turn an  email into a PDF file so I can print it out on Open Office?  If I just copy and past, it’s all over the place when I try to print.

Thank you

 In my experience you can cut and paste the text of an email--just the text, not anything else that's on the page--into an OO document and it doesn't go all over the place. I guess it might depend on your email program. I just do that, then make a pdf of the document by clicking the icon on the toolbar, and print the pdf.

The other technique you can use (in Win10) is to use File>Print in your
email client and choose "Microsoft Print to PDF" as the printer.  It
will then prompt you to specify a file name and location.

Karen, not sure your goal.

If you want to print the email (you start with "...turn an email into a
pdf" and then you end with "...when I try to print", so I'm guessing you
want to print the email) why not use the "print" option in your email? It
saves a bunch of steps.

If you've tried printing the email while viewing and you don't get the
print out you expect, say extra parts of the web page are printing not only
the text of the email, then you may be selecting the print menu from the
browser and not from within the email.

With an email open type Ctrl+P. If the printing dialog that opens is the
one you usually see then for sure it is the wrong print option being used.
Click "Cancel" to return to your email. Then look carefully around the
edges of the email's reading area. See if you can locate a little printer
icon, a three periods "..."  icon,  or a "more..." link. The three periods
or the more link should lead to a printer selection if there isn't a print
icon on the message border. If you find a print option, try it.

You need to use the command to print the message (which is put on the page
as part of the email program), it is not the command to print the whole
webpage (everything in the browser window).
