    I'm new to using Dreamweaver and can't seem to find something. Is it possible to save a Dreamweaver page as a pdf or some similar file so I can send it in an email to someone without them having to own the Dreamweaver program?

    Your page is probably saved as a .html page. They can open that with any browser, like firefox, or safari. You just have to email any files that the html page is dependent on (like images).

    Depends what you want to accomplish -- if you simply want to send them an image of how the page will look in a browser, then Preview the page (F12) which opens a web browser, and then Print the page choosing Save as PDF instead of a printer.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the help! But I experienced another complication. After I saved it as a pdf it didn't show all of the color I had used on my page. Is there a way to save it as a pdf and keep it exactly as it was before?

    You could do a screen grab. cmd+shft+4, then spacebar allow you to take a grab of a specific, entire window. You could send that png to the client, or save it as a pdf and then send it.
