When you print a report from RealTracs, they are no longer rendered first as a PDF and then printed from your PDF software. Rather, they are sent straight to the printer so you can get what you need faster and easier. But, what if you want to save the document as a PDF? The tips below will help you do just that.


If you are using Windows 10 on a PC:


Regardless of the browser you are using on your pc, Windows 10 has a print to PDF function already build in. Simply select Microsoft Print to PDF from your list of available printers and then print as normal. On Firefox, the list of printers can be by clicking the drop down box of available printers (fig. 1). On Chrome, click Change (fig. 2) to view you available printers and select Microsoft Print to PDF.
