The Portable Document Format (PDF) file format is a binary format which contains page description primitives and combines a subset of the Postscript language with some more recent features. The Portable Document Format is a page description language designed to enable the creation and transfer of printer-ready output.
Gnumeric supports the creation of PDF files through the printing interface, not through the file save mechanism. See Chapter 15 ― Printing, for details on how to generate a PDF file.
