I'm not seeing the post to which you are responding so apologies for
replying to the wrong person.

If what is wanted is professional looking brochures, I'm assuming that
you are talking about a combination of text and graphics. Scribus would
be a more appropriate tool for this. You will have much finer control
over formatting and layout. The comparable Adobe product is InDesign.

Not familiar with "printing professional quality brochures". However, as
far as I know, a PDF is a PDF in that sense that if the file conforms to
the standard then it can be used for any purpose intended for a PDF. A
printer would most likely want a PDF/A since that must be a self contained
document. Draw exports PDF/A.

Don't know about the "quality" of the PDF. I expect would be based on two
things, the source program's internal representations of the objects to
print and the PDF printer's fidelity rendering them.

Mac does print to PDF. Check bottom left of printer selection dialog for
"PDF" button.

Hi, and so many thanks for replying.
Was actually asking wondering those PDFs would be good enough for printing
professional quality brochures and such.
Adobe is prohibitively expensive, for casual users.
Am on a Mac.

LibreOffice Draw has a menu option File>Export as PDF..., so yes it can.

Also, if you're using Windows 10 it has it's own built-in PDF printer.
Select "Microsoft Print to PDF" as the printer and it will produce a PDF of
the document.

Hi, am coming from this link, apologies if this is the wrong email to
Just wanted to know if the LibreOffice Draw file discussed in the link
can create print quality PDFs, or is there no option but to use Adobe.
The document discusses this partially and also mentions Adobe.
