Google Documents VS. PDFelement

The above mentioned is all about how to create PDF via Google Docs. However, as you could see, the output PDF is like a plain text, without any image, graphic, which makes me have no good impressions on google documents. If you would like to save the Google Doc to a PDF file, the formatting and the layout of the original file will be lost. To solve the problem, I suggest you use PDFelement to create PDF file. Only in 2 clicks, you'll achieve your goal.
