Many thanks

Here is a software tool (Diag) that you can use to do that.  It does it in 2 steps:

1) The main function is first to convert the PGN or FEN to diagrams. The diagrams are stored in an *.rtf  file which can be edited or changed as needed.
2)  You can then easily convert the *.rtf file to PDF using packages like Adobe Acrobat, Foxit Phantom, or free online rtf to PDF converters. Or print to PDF using pdf printer drivers for example the free Foxit Reader, Nitro PDF Reader or doPdf.

In this download is the software plus the supporting fonts that you must install on your system.  There is a readme.txt file with full instructions please read that carefully as it explains what to do:    

Code:

(link are not clickable you have to copy and paste into a web browser - I post links this way as it avoids the ad.fly and advertising stuff that gets attached to links if you post them directly)

NOTE: this is not my program so please do not ask me for any guidance or help using it  - I am just sharing it in response to this request, as it was shared on Immortal and I have it on my hard drive.  All thanks to the original author and uploader of this software.
