How to Save Primavera As a PDF File

Primavera is a widely used program management application developed by Oracle. It allows users to track the time and costs associated with a range of project-related resources, including labor, materials and equipment. By default, Primavera does not allow you to save charts or reports to PDF format. To do so, you must download and install a PDF printer driver, then save your document as a PDF using the program's print function. Several freely available drivers can accomplish this task.
