PDF saving options

Last of all we see this pop up box. Most noteworthy is the text output options. This depends on what you want to do with the document.

Will you drag and drop it into Inkscape again with the intention of editing it? Choose embed. This means the fonts stay fonts.

Choose convert to path if you are finished with the fonts and perhaps are sending it off to the printer. Ideally you would have finalized fonts before saving the document but this works too.

Resolution is important. For web graphics it is ok to set it to 96. For print you will need 300.

Finally, Click ok.

That’s it!

Well, until you want to use it again. Then simply drag and drop the PDF file into Inkscape.
