For those with Mac computers: how to save diaries, pages,- etc. as PDF documents

If you have a Mac computer like mommy does, Beepers told Kaci an easy way to save diary entries, etc. in PDF format on your computer. You don't have to download Google Chrome or Firefox (unless you want to). You can use your Safari browser.

From Beepers:

Kaci, or anyone using a Mac:

You can save almost any page as a PDF very easily -- it does not matter what browser you're using. Your Catster pages won't look exactly the same, but I haven't found a PDF converter yet that makes them exactly the same as you see them. Kaci, you can try this using Safari and see what you think (I have both Chrome and Safari and the PDF's made via the "print" function look the same).

1. Hit Command and P on the keyboard to bring up the "print" menu

2. On the Print menu, go to the lower left-hand corner and click on the arrow alongside PDF

3. Choose "Save as PDF…"

4. It will then open the menu to choose where to save it, and what to name it.

You could also use an online PDF converter. The PDF's look different that way than making them through the Print function, so you might prefer one over the other. I tried these so far:

and the one Flicka suggested the other day:

Thank you Miss Mittens and Beepers for this information. Having this info helps alleviate some of the stress of worrying about saving everything --though we're so so sad about what's happening.

Thank you for posting this.

My mom just went to my pages and saved all of my diary entries and pictures which we had copies of on the desk top. It it these contacts that we will miss and giving treats to those in need. Facebook can be overwhelming.
