Save email as PDF and PDF in Word – here’s how
With Mail for the iPhone or iPad, you need to save emails as PDF in order to share them in Messenger or to save them on the device. We’ll explain how to do it.
Hidden function enables PDF export of mails on iPhone
The pre-installed mail app from iOS is very tidy and looks spartan when it comes to forwarding mails to other programs. Local storage on the device does not seem to be possible either.
- Both functions are integrated in the app, but rather hidden.
- Open an email in the Mail app. Below you can see two buttons for forwarding and deleting the mail. Tap the forward arrow.
- Now scroll down to the option “Print”. Tap on it and a print preview will appear.
- When the print preview appears, pull it apart with two fingers as if you were zooming in on an image. Alternatively, on older iPhones with 3D Touch, you can press the print preview a little harder to enlarge it.
- Now the conventional share button is also displayed, which you can use to send a PDF version of the mail.
- You can, for example, save the PDF in your notes or in a cloud service such as Dropbox or Google Drive.
PDF in Word – this is how it works
If you want to insert a PDF document into Word, you don’t have to laboriously convert pdf to word or take a screenshot. We’ll show you how to do it right.
In order to be able to use this function in Word, you must have installed Adobe Reader. If this is not yet the case, you can download it here.
- Open one of your Word documents or create a new document. Click with the mouse at the point in the document where the PDF should be inserted.
- Now click on the “Insert” tab at the top.
- Further to the right you will find the “Object” button.
- Select “Adobe Acrobat Document” from the list and click the “OK” button.
- Now you can select any PDF and click on the “Open” button.
- The PDF will now be inserted into the Word document. At the same time, the PDF opens in Adobe Reader. However, you can close this again immediately.
