Printing in PDF Format

PDF (Portable Document Format) is a universally accepted file format that retains all of the fonts, formatting, colors and graphics of documents regardless of the software application or platform used to create it. Installing a PDF creator/printer will allow you to print any report from MCSJ in PDF format. Instead of printing your reports to paper, you can create a PDF document, which allows you to save them electronically, saving lots of paper and storage space. PDF files are different from word or other text documents because they do not have the ability to be changed. If you send someone a PDF file, it must stay exactly the way it was sent. The PDF document format provides the following benefits:

The file format is ideal for archiving, since the look and feel of documents is retained and the document size is compact
