Print to file

I'm using PAF 3.01M, 4.0.3 and Companion 2.1. I can't find a way to save a short report as a file so I can send it as an e-mail attachment. The particular report I'm dealing with is a five-generation descendancy report, with only 28 people and 9 marriages on it. I can send it as a .bmp chart from Companion, but that's about 1 MB.

PAF Help says I can use the "Print to file" command; but my printer, an HP 5L, does not support print to file. Yes, I can send the data as a GEDCOM file, but that doesn't help me get it to people who are internet-connected but are not GEDCOM-capable. I'd be grateful for any ingenious work-arounds, if any exist.
