PM7 unable to "Export to PDF "

PM7 unable to "Export to PDF "

PM7 unable to "Export to PDF "

(OP)
I am suddenly unable to Export to PDF or Print to a PS printer and get "Exporting a PDF file requires a Postscript printer driver. Please install one." Since then I have downloaded about half-a-dozen Generic and other PS print drivers but still the error message comes up.

How do I tell PM7 that indeed I do have a PS driver and/or where it is?

RE: PM7 unable to "Export to PDF "

Which version of Windows are you using?

Iechyd da! John! Thanks for your response.

I'm running Win 7 Ultimate on a 64-bit PC.

RE: PM7 unable to "Export to PDF "

PM is ancient and not designed to run on recent versions of windows.

There is no longer a separate PS driver as it's now incorporated into Windows.

Your best bet is to use a Win2K or possibly WinXP on a contemporary PC.

You might wish to post in the PM sections of forums.adobe.com for more ideas.

Yes, I do know that John, but thousands of us worldwide do it.

But they won't run the "Export as PDF" macro.

Here's my tutorial from years ago - on Win2K.
Installing and Setting Up PM7's Export… Adobe PDF… using the “Application” CD-ROM (Some linked pages no longer exist.)
But don't expect it work on anything newer than WinXP.

Link to Adobe's U2U PM Forum? https://forums.adobe.com/community/pagemaker_general.
