  1. Everything worked perfectly except that it saved 15 blank pages on my iPad. I can do it on my laptop but I was hoping I could do it here as well.

    1. Maybe the page you’re trying to save as PDF has Infinity Scrolling like, Instagram, FB, and Twitter. That’s why you’ve got 15 blank pages.

      You should consider changing the Range from ‘All Pages’ to the number of pages you need to save.

    1. If there is no connected printer, you cannot print a hard copy. However, if you want to save it as a PDF file, tap on the preview pages to see the option to store as PDF.
