I just installed QGIS 3.6 on a new Macbook pro running Mojave, and I'm trying to produce geospatial PDFs of some basic maps of property boundaries overlaid onto aerial imagery base maps to use in Avenza on an iPhone.
I'm new to open source GIS, and what I'm used to with Arc being able to export directly to a geospatial PDF seems to be much more difficult with QGIS. It seems that the best workaround mentioned online is to export a map to a TIF with world data, then to convert that TIF to a PDF. On a PC running QGIS 3.2.3, I can do that just fine--I export a map image which creates a .tif file and a .tfw file, then I can use the "Translate (Convert Format)" tool in the raster drop-down menu and use that TIF as an input, select the projection, and select .pdf as the output file type to generate a geospatial PDF, but on my Mac PDF isn't listed as an output file type option.
I'm struggling to find a way to just get a map formatted so I can open it in Avenza, and I have no idea why this file type is an option on my older PC version of QGIS but not on the newer version on my mac. Does anybody has an idea of how I can take a map I produce in QGIS and easily export it as or convert it to a geospatial PDF? It seems most of the info I've found on either is outdated or involves a writing Python scripts that I just don't understand.
