How to Save a Google Doc as a PDF
If you're looking to share your Google doc as a PDF, then you'll need to convert it. You don't actually "save" a Google Doc as a PDF file; you "download" the Google Doc as a PDF file. In this guide, we'll show you how to save a PDF in Google Docs.
Benefits of saving a Google Doc as a PDF file
It's recommended to use PDF files, as opposed to Google Doc files, when you need to make sure that the recipient of the file sees the formatting exactly the way you intended it. Often, when we transfer files over email or via upload, our formatting gets lost. A PDF file will ensure that the file formatting is retained.
