To export or save your document to your computer as a Word or PDF document:

  1. Select  and open the document that you want to export from your “Documents” page
  2. Click on the green “Export” button in the right hand corner of the page
  3. Click the green arrow, which will then give you the choice to export your document into a PDF, or a Microsoft Word format. Please note that some forms can only be downloaded as one type of file, so you may not be able to choose the file type.
  4. Choose the location on your computer where you would like to store your document

Once your document is safely exported to your computer, you can then open the
Downloaded document in your PDF or MS Word application by locating the file and double clicking it. Use Word or your PDF reader to print the document if you’d like. If you’re launching in MS Word, you can also add final formatting touches to your document.

If you want to print directly from the builder, please click on the print icon near the top of the page. Please make sure you do not have your pop up blocker on.

Please note that some forms do not give you this print option and must be downloaded first, onto your computer, in order to print them. If this is the case, please follow the directions below to print your document.
