But how to change the portrait into landscape mode in Google Docs?

If you have no idea, then this post comes in handy. On this page, we will provide a detailed step-by-step tutorial to assist in completing the task.

There are many times you may need to send a Google document to someone. For example, if you are sharing a document with family or friends, you may be happy to share the Google Docs directly. If, however, you are sending a copy to a client or someone similar, you're much more likely to want or need a PDF, which is universally compatible and more portable than other file types.

So, if you have created a Google Doc and want to convert it to PDF, you can directly download it as a PDF file like below:

  • Click "File" > "Download" > "PDF Document (.pdf)", then click on the "Save" option to keep it on your computer for sharing
