Access the AQ Report PDF files


Once you have created the report as a PDF file, you will want to be able to access the report file to view it, print it or share it. Here is how you can do that.

You will need to make your Hard Drive visible on your desktop, if it isn't already. To do this:

Step 1

Activate the Finder and on the menu bar, click on Finder, then Preferences.

Step 2

Within the Finder Preferences screen that opens, beneath the Show these items n the desktop heading, click to select Hard Disks, then close the Preferences screen.


The previous step places the Hard Drive icon on your Desktop.

Access the Hard Drive

Step 3

Double-click on the Hard Drive icon or otherwise open up the Hard drive window.

Step 4

Within the Hard Drive window that appears, double-click on the Users folder.


Step 5

Double click on the Shared folder.


Step 6

Double click on the PDFwriter folder.


Step 7

Double click on the folder that appears; it will likely have your own name.


Step 8

Inside this folder is where you will find the PDF files of your reports generated by PDFwriter.

Tip: You may wish to create an Alias for this folder and place the Alias in a more easily accessible location so you can quickly get to future PDF reports that you create from Ancestral Quest.


Step 9

You are welcome to rename any of the report files, as you wish.

You can also move these PDF files to where you need them.
