How To: Email Any File As A PDF From Any Application The Supports Printing
If an application you are using supports print functionality then you will be able to create a PDF which can be easily emailed to any recipient.
Proceed to File > Print from the Menu Bar or select Command + P on your keyboard to present the print window as shown below:
As you can see I have already clicked on the PDF button in the lower left hand corner of the Print window. Navigate down to Mail PDF and depending on the size of your file this may take as little as a few seconds to a few minutes.
By the end of the process Mail will launch a new Mail window and a PDF version of the file will be included in the body of the message and therefore attached to the email. Then simply address, add a subject and message, and hit send.
