This article will explain how to convert PDFs into PNGs and why PDFs cannot be sent through the Announcements feature.
Why does my PDF need to be converted to a different file?
PDFs are notorious for having large file sizes. Our Announcements feature allows a file size up to 5 MB. Some PDFs won't be able to fit with those constraints, so we can convert the PDF to a different file to minimize the size!
How can I convert the file?
There are a couple of options! The easiest and quickest option is to take a screenshot of the PDF.
Macs: shift + command + 4
This will allow you to drag your mouse over the open PDF to take a perfect picture of the file. When the mouse is released the screenshot will be saved to your file browser.
PCs: Windows Logo + shift + s
This will allow you to capture a "snippet" within the PC.
Screenshots will save as a PNG file, perfect for the Announcement feature!
The other option is using a PDF Converter.
This website is a great free option for converting a PDF to another file type.
Once the new file is downloaded, you can upload the file onto an announcement by following these instructions.
