# Saving a Plot as a PDF without the “ Out[.] ” Appearing in the Plot? [duplicate]

I suddenly cannot save a ListLinePlot (with a legend) as a PDF without it also saving the indicator "Out[.] =" also there. This is really strange since I've been saving them all along (by highlighting the cell and using "save selection as" without it showing, then suddenly out of nowhere, this "Out[.]=" started appearing? I never even closed the notebook. Could it maybe have something to do with having done a Clear["Global$$$$*"]?

• Welcome to Mathematica.SE! I suggest the following: 1) As you receive help, try to give it too, by answering questions in your area of expertise. 2) Take the tour and check the faqs! 3) When you see good questions and answers, vote them up by clicking the gray triangles, because the credibility of the system is based on the reputation gained by users sharing their knowledge.

• Perhaps try restarting with a new kernel? Please also add a minimal working example to your question so that others can test to see if they can help you solve the problem. – Dunlop Aug 23 '19 at 5:29
• You can delete the Out manually. – Ulrich Neumann Aug 23 '19 at 6:27
• right click ON the graph and then save. Or use Export. – CasperYC Aug 23 '19 at 13:51
• @UlrichNeumann , deleting manually worked perfectly the first time, when Out was showing. Now Out doesn't show on any of them, but shows in the PDF again? – Moose Aug 23 '19 at 17:36

As an alternative to both, use Export` instead of the GUI method.
