    Does anyone know of an app for printing the display to a PDF file (e.g. print screen)?

    I don't know how to make a PDF for free, but there's 1000's of paid apps that do this. Print screen to jpg is free and easy though :)

    Hello and welcome to the forum! :)

    You may need to clarify you question above - first, I'm assuming that you mean the 'display' on the iPad screen? This can be captured as a JPEG photo and stored in the camera roll of the Photo App (done by simulataneously pressing the On-Off & Home buttons) - now I'm assuming that you would like to convert that into a PDF file?

    Well, if possible the process would require some 3rd party app - just gave Goodreader a try on my iPad w/o success; hopefully, others may 'chime in' w/ suggestions or apologies, if not possible.

    Question is now answered. I can capture the display to the jpg format and use print n share to convert to PDF. Perfect. Thanks for the help
