Take a capture of the text and then convert the capture to pdf.

Did you try googling this first? I'm sure you did, which is why you probably also found this plugin: https://marketplace.coronalabs.com/corona-plugins/pdf-image-converter

So, to answer your question. Yes.

Thanks for the response.

 

I am wanting to save more then images.  Basically I want Corona to make some calculations to some data print the results on the screen then save the result as text in a pdf file.  Would Corona consider the text as an image?

The resulting pdf will not be searchable however.
