    Goodmorning everyone,
    I have to save a PDF of several pages on disk but I can’t remember how I can do it
    I put the usual dialogues like print page and detstination and then Begin Print Job. The program prints but does not save them anywhere
    How do I request to save the file?
    Thank you

    You need to do the following (assuming Studio 8.0 or higher):
    Do $cdevice.$assign(kDevOmnisPDF) ;; Switch to the Omnis PDF device.
    Calculate $prefs.$reportfile as ‘full path to PDF file’ ;; Omnis PDF uses the $prefs.$reportfile to determine where to write the PDF.
    Print report

    Open a file in a Windows application.
    Choose File > Print.
    Choose Adobe PDF as the printer in the Print dialog box. To customize the Adobe PDF printer setting, click the Properties (or Preferences) button. …
    Click Print. Type a name for your file, and click Save.
