    Using Windows OS:  The short way is to make the block diagram the active window. 
    Press and hold the Ctrl key and press on "Print Screen", in other words, Ctrl-PrintScreen.
    Open Windows document (maybe have it opened already). Place cursor where you want the image to appear and press Ctrl-V (or select Paste from the Edit menu).
    When using Word, it usually resizes the image to the appropriate borders within your document.
     
    The longer version would be to first paste in MS-Paint (or similar application), and resize the picture manually.  The select all, copy & paste to the Word document.
    To create a pdf, you would first need to place that image into some sort of document (ie Word) or use MS-Paint and use the pdf create application to convert it to pdf (some use the print as pdf for instance).  But you need a pdf creation app such as Adobe to do so.

    Generally accepted as good practice is to keep the size of front panels and block diagrams to the size of one screen. It is difficult to understand what a large diagram is doing when you need to scroll around to see everything. The use of subVIs is recommended as one of the techniques needed to keep diagram size small. It is likely that your programming ability may improve by keeping the diagram small because you will need to think about the design of the program and how it can be partitioned into subVIs or a better architecture. If you know in advance that a printed document is part of the requirements, place a decoration on the diagram which is the size of your printed page. Then put all the code inside the decoration. The decoration may be removed before printing - it is just a visual guide during program development.Lynn

    Hello Bjørnar,
    &nbsp;
    here is another possibility (Win-OS):
    1) In BD or FP&nbsp;choose from menu "Edit -&gt; Select All" or press Ctrl+A.
    2) Choose "Edit -&gt; Copy" or press Ctrl-C
    3) Change to Word and choose "Edit -&gt; paste" or press Ctrl-V
