    There is no option to email a PDF from the iBooks app.

    When you say 'automatically saves a pdf' I am assuming you mean from a web link, email, or something like that. As Allan stated there is no way to email a pdf from iBooks.

    You can email a .pdf file from other apps such as GoodReader. Therefore, I don't save .pdf files into iBooks from web pages, email, etc., I save them into GoodReader. From there I can email them, transfer them to my iMac, view them.

    If this isn't what you are thinking of then nevermind

    This is what I would like to do with iBooks. Are these things possible?
    1. I have saved a lot of scientific articles as pdfs. I would like to be able to email these articles from iBooks.
    2. I would like to be able to take notes and highlight these pdfs
    3. Use the dictionary.

    I have not been able to figure out how to do these things.
    ipad, none

    You won't figure it because it cannot be done from iBooks - plain and simple. The inability to add attachments to an email is one of the several glaring omissions from the Iphones functionality.

    It can and shall be done its 2012 don't know if its due to an upgrade but if u open the PDF and hit the share button at the top right next to "library" and the "content" buttons you will have a share (email) and print option. Now apple about that highlight option it's about time we get up to the time. I need to highlight my PDFs like I do my books all colour coded and organized.
