If you are fond of Freeform, Apple’s brand-new app, chances are pretty high that you would be exploring all the means and ways to get the most out of it. And why not, the app boasts a solid collection of tools and also lets you collaborate with others on projects. At some point, you may want to export your boards as PDFs for a hassle-free sharing experience. If you are not sure how it’s done, let me show you how to quickly export Freeform projects as PDFs on iPhone and iPad.
Export Freeform Projects As PDFs on iPhone and iPad
For those uninitiated, PDF stands for portable document format and is widely used as the official file format. Notably, it doesn’t change the format of a document due to transition. On top of all, it also allows users to password-protect a document to ward off unauthorized access.
Step 1. First off, open the Apple Freeform app on your iPhone or iPad.
Step 2. Now, navigate to the main screen and hit All Boards to access all your projects.
Step 3. Find the board you wish to convert into PDF and select it.
Step 4. Hit the triple-dot icon at the upper-right corner of the screen.
Step 5. In the drop-down menu, choose Export As PDF.
Step 6. In the standard share sheet, choose the desired medium through which you would like to share the PDF file. If need be, you can also save it to your Files app.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why is Freeform not syncing with iCloud?
Make sure you have enabled iCloud for the Freeform app. Go to the Settings app -> Apple ID banner -> iCloud -> Show All -> find Freeform app and then turn on the toggle next to it. Besides, ensure that you have sufficient iCloud storage.
Head over to a Freeform board and select a text banner. After that, tap on the menu button (triple-dot icon) in the formatting window that shows at the bottom. Next, choose Lock in the menu. Note that once a banner has been locked, you can neither make any changes to it nor move it. To remove the lock, tap on the banner and then hit the Unlock button in the menu.
