I would say it is more like saving to RTF, which is a "save" option, though a
crappy one. (JPEG and RTF are both low-quality editable formats which lose
data/formatting, compared to the native XCF and ODT formats). Exporting to PDF
is converting from an editable format to an essentially non-editable container
format, and IS an Export--Incidentally, one printer in my area prefers even
image files to be exported to PDF...*sigh*...because Windows prints it directly
instead of shoving it through that crappy photo printing wizard.
