PDF of unpublished ible? Answered

I can't seem to get a PDF generated of an ible I am working on, but not published yet.  Is this possible?

I've tried both custom and default PDF options.

Reason: I'd like to share with local group, but still add to the ible before publishing for the Instructables community.

Should I publish as a private ible, then switch to a public ible at a later date? (Is that possible and will that allow me to download the PDF?)

You need to publish your project as a "private" Instructable - have a look at the tabs above your unpublished project.

Published as private - works as you said.

Cheers!

You could always publish it quickly, get the PDF and then unpublish it. I've done that before.

I don't think you can get the PDFs until it is published in one way or another.

Looks like you are right. Some sort of null-file name until published, causing a error.

dunno, but is that the secret plans to the uber-pickinic table which provides a common ground for world leaders to meet, settle their differences and lay a foundation for a better future? You cannot keep that to yourself.

It is!

But if the tables are made incorrectly, they are uncomfortable. This will aggravate the leaders of the world, precipitating global conflict...

Serious stuff!
