Adobe Express is a mobile and web app that makes it possible for anyone to create logos, flyers, social media posts, stories, banners, PDFs and more with zero design knowledge or experience required.

How to create a PDF in Adobe Express
Open up Adobe Express (Beta)
You’ll need to sign up for an account to access the beta. You can try the beta for free or pay to access additional features and templates.
You can also choose any of the other categories to get started. We’ll be making a document as this is a category you might typically want to export as a PDF.
Choose a document type
You can also upload an existing PDF to work from or convert another file to/from a PDF.
Click Create From Scratch
Or select Browse Templates to skip straight to the template gallery.
Design your PDF and hit Download
Adobe Express includes a wide array of templates, media, fonts and elements you can experiment with.
Click the arrow to see file format options
This will open up a dropdown menu.
Choose PDF (Best for documents)
This is the last option.
The document to your computer will save as a PDF.
While there is an Adobe Express app, the beta (which includes the redesigned interface and new features) is only accessible on a web browser right now.
However, Adobe’s website does say that a mobile version is coming soon.
You can create PDFs in the old version of Adobe Express on your desktop but not on the mobile app.
