How to convert sch to pdf

Updated April 17, 2017

A Schematics (.sch) file on your computer is associated with the Easily Applicable Graphical Layout Editor (EAGLE) design software. Once you have finished working on an ."sch" file on a Windows PC, saving it into a format that you can present to others, such as ".pdf," requires Microsoft Publisher, a PostScript printer and the Adobe Acrobat Distiller software.

Open the ".sch" file with Microsoft Publisher. Click the "File" menu and click "Print."

Click the "Name" box, click "Printer" and choose the "Microsoft Publisher Imagesetter." Check the "Print to file" box with your mouse, and click "OK."

Type in a name for the file that ends in ".ps" to save the ".sch" file as a PostScript file; for example, type in "MyPublication.ps" with your keyboard. Select your computer's "Desktop" as the destination for the file to be saved to, and click "OK."

Open Adobe Acrobat Distiller, click the "File" menu, and click "Open." Select the "MyPublication.ps" file you saved to your desktop, and click "Open" to display the file in Distiller.

Click the "File" menu and click "Save." Type in a name for the file that ends in ".pdf;" for example, type in "MyPublication.pdf" with your keyboard. Select your computer's "Desktop" as the save destination, and click "Save."

Open the file on your desktop to use it.
