I have the Printmaster Platinum Version17 , I cannot save to pdf files?

I have created some magazine pages in my newsletter section and I need to send them to a print company that only accepts pdf files. I am having a hard time figuring out how to go about this. Although the print master program prompts me to save in pdf format, I cannot seem to do that .I am working on a new Windows Vista computer.

When you print to a PDF file, it does not actually print the file, it prints TO A file. You then will be presented a save file as screen and you should select you location for saving files, give it a name and save it. It then is a PDF. If you click on it, it will open in PDF reader. That is how a PDF works.

Sure - just use windows explorer and locate the documents you have in there. The files you created will have an identifier at the end such as " .doc " ".pdf" whatever.. Anyway, after finding them just transfer them over to a blank folder that you create making note of where you found them in the first place. Then uninstall the program, reinstall it and then put the saved files back into the same area you got them from originally. BTW, some programs when you uninstall them give you the option of not destroying files you created but with software I never take any chances!

I have the Printmaster Platinum Version17 , I cannot save to pdf files?

As a work around untill we can figure this issue out.
This is a FREE PDF Print to file program.

At the top left of the page the are links to the PDF Creator and the Required GPL Ghostscript 8. The program will not function without it. Both programs work with x64 Vista. Read the website for the other benifits or the program.

Unable to create pfd with word 2007 document

That is normal, Word 2007 cannot create PDF documents, it can only save files on PDF but, being PDF non his own format, it will lose document format, and may not display pdf.

To create PDF you need the full version (not the free acrobat reader) of adobe acrobat, or a different adobe software (eg illustrator) that manages PDF.

I did a 4 page newsletter and saved it. Now when I open the newsletter just one page comes up with no place to turn the page and no way to enlarge the page.

Yes you are right that the software is not doing its best.Its a failure from Printmaster Platinum 18, check out if it is under trial period, then upgrade.
Or it might be the case with Printmaster not compatible with Vista. Otherwise use a different software.

Please vote the solution.
