Create PDF File On Mac OS X And Protect PDF File With Password

How to create PDF File on Mac OS X. In Mac we can directly create a PDF (Portable Document Format) file, unlike in Windows that needs a third-party software to achieve the same. And the PDF file created from Mac can hold its original format no matter you open it in any other operating systems. You can open the PDF file created from Mac in Windows, Linux, Android, iOS, or any other operating systems as long as they support PDF file format.

PDF offers some benefits to consider like its nature as printable material. You can easily print it and it's more like a book than a web page or page of document.
