Sorry, your post was stuck in the queue for approvals as it was your first post but I did reply to your email the same day.

For anyone else, exporting to PDF on the Mac version is done by choosing print and then preview. This makes a PDF which is displayed in the OS X preview program. From there, you can save as a pdf, change page size, export to another graphics format.

The reason we do it this way in the Mac version is that OS X always prints by making a pdf first. It is relatively simple to hijack the pdf, display it and then stop it printing. On Windows, there is no pdf generator and we have to use a 3rd party library to create it and so it appears as an export like the other graphics formats. That library is not available for Mac.
