Exporting to PDF

I really like this app but there is one obvious shortcoming: I can't export a PDF! It says on this website that you can share your tabs as PDFs. I don't see any option to do this on my app. Only as a tabular file, plain txt and MIDI. If I export anything complicated or with lyrics, it often comes out very messy as a text. Am I missing something?

    Hey Zachary, sorry for the confusion! It should be made more clear in the app, but exporting to PDF is done via the print menu. If you go to print a document, there should be a dropdown menu labeled "PDF" that will have an option to save the printout as a PDF file.

    Hope that helps!

    Ahhh. Yes! That's what I was looking for. Thanks so much. I wonder if it would be worth adding the option to this export menu in a future update for user-friendliness.

    Awesome, glad that helped! And definitely, I'll be looking into incorporating PDF export into the export menu soon.
