+Don't worry, here is a Mac service which adds this functionality to [iA Writer](http://www.iawriter.com/) using an amazing document format convertor library called [Pandoc](http://johnmacfarlane.net/pandoc/).
## Installation
1. Download [iA Writer](http://itunes.apple.com/app/id439623248?mt=12) from the App Store.
2. Install Pandoc 1.9.x using a package installer listed on the [installation page](http://johnmacfarlane.net/pandoc/installing.html).
-3. If you have not pdflatex on your system, you have to install a [Latex distribution](http://www.tug.org/mactex) first (check it out by writing ```which pdflatex``` into your Terminal).
-4. Download the [service](https://github.com/kubanek-l/iA-Writer-Export/tags) and move it to ```~/Library/Services``` or use a simple install script (```./install```) which does the same for you.

+4. Download [iA Writer Export service](https://github.com/kubanek-l/iA-Writer-Export/tags) and move it to ```~/Library/Services``` or use a simple install script (```./install```) which does the same for you.
5. Optionally you can set a shortcut for the export functionality. How to do this is described in the last section of [this article](http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-create-your-own-services-menus-mac/).
+## Usage
+
+Save your document first, it has to be saved before exporting. If you want to export the Markdown file to PDF, select ```iA Writer > Services > Export Markdown to PDF``` in the menu and wait until a new window with the exported PDF file appears. It will be saved in the same location as the Markdown file but with different extension.
+
+Pandoc and iA Writer Export support more than iA Writer does. Check out the [Pandoc's Markdown](http://johnmacfarlane.net/pandoc/demo/example9/pandocs-markdown.html). Use links, source code highlighting, footnotes, images, tables, definitions, math equations, raw Latex, citations and more.
