Mac OS - How to print PDF files?

October 2016


I want to know how to print PDF files on Mac OSX, is there a tool needed to do this?


I do not use any tools other than that which is standard in Mac OS X:
  • 1) For any file you do "print"
  • 2) You click on "PDF" lower left, choosing any option
  • 3) You decide where to save your file.

Then re-opening your ***. pdf file (with default preview):
You re-recorded "save as" possibly choosing Quartz filter " Reduce file size "


Thanks to Wire for this tip.
