Before you place your order or print your book, card, or calendar, it’s a good idea to preview it to make sure it looks exactly the way you want it to.
After carefully previewing your project, you may want to make additional edits to text or photos before you print or order the project.
You preview your project by creating a PDF file, which you can view on your computer using Preview, Acrobat Reader, or Safari or another web browser. You can also print a PDF file from any of those applications.
Note: In a hardcover book, the first two and last two pages of the PDF file are the book’s wraparound dust jacket.
There are three ways to make a PDF file.
To make a PDF file using the Print command:
Choose File > Print.
Click the Preview button.

You can save the PDF file just as you would any other document.
