1. In the upper-left corner, click File. Select 'Share' on the list which appears.
On the screen that appears:
2. Under 'Attach a copy instead', select Word document or PDF.
3. You will be directed to your email program (e.g. Outlook, Gmail, etc.)
4. Add a recipient, type a message if you would like then send the email.
