Apple has recently introduced a new app called “Freeform” with the release of iOS 16.2, iPadOS 16.2, and macOS 13.1. If you are someone who likes to jot down your thoughts or ideas, and create sketches or drawings with better control and enhanced precision, then Freeform is the perfect app for you.
The best part about Freeform is that it comes with a built-in feature that allows you to export your projects as PDF documents with ease.
How to Export Freeform project as PDF
PDF is a widely preferred format due to its compatibility with various devices and its ability to preserve the layout of a document. Additionally, PDFs can be password-protected, making them a reliable choice for sharing official documents.
To export your Freeform projects as PDFs on your iPhone or iPad, follow these simple steps:
1. Open the Freeform app on your iPhone or iPad.
2. Tap “All Boards” on the main screen.
3. Choose the board that you want to export as a PDF by tapping on it.
4. Now tap the three-dot icon on the upper right corner of the screen.
5. Select the Export as PDF option from the drop-down menu.
The standard share sheet will open, allowing you to share the document via email, AirDrop, Messages, or save it to the Files app. Choose your preferred option and you’re done. Repeat the same steps to export more Freeform boards as PDFs.
Overall, the Freeform app is an excellent tool for creating unique and creative projects. However, one downside is that the iPhone does not support the use of the Apple Pencil.
While there are other digital pens available in the market, the Apple Pencil stands out as one of the best. It would be great to have the option to use it with the Freeform app.
