LibreOffice for Write document, Calc spreadsheet, Presentation (PowerPoint) and Draw, all use "Export as PDF" for a PDF.
GIMP - "Export as" for a PDF.

Using "Save as" and it will be saved an odt or doc or xls or odf. Any Office programme, drawing programme, picture programme needs "Export as" for producing a PDF.

man -t last | ps2pdf - last.pdf in terminal for converting man pages, but you can do the same with other pages.

There's a PDF export button in the toolbar.

That's how I generate my own PDFs.
I'm so down wit' dat', yo, dass ich unter dem Beton bin.

Presently rocking LinuxMint 19.2 Cinnamon.

Remember to mark your fixed problem [SOLVED].

All in all, you're just another brick in the wall.
