Looking for a recommendation for a pdf printer.

What do you use for printing the TC files to pdf. I was using "Right PDF Printer" but it seems not to pick up some of my text items.

Thanks

I'm not torfinn ;-)

... but cutepdf does show up in my list of printers, both in TCad and in my WinXP Control Panel>Printers and Faxes. (So does PrimoPDF.)

Ahh .. looks like the evaluation version does not integrate to the printer. I got the full version and it shows up in the list of printers.

Thanks

Menu / File / Save As/
In the pop up dialog there should be an option in the drop down for Save As Type that allows you to  inter alia choose PDF
Dunno if this is so in Ver 11 tho'

HA HA HA I feel your pain.  I just tried it for the first time in 16.1 pro platinum. Works perfectly.

Sometimes you are left with only one option: Uninstall the whole program and reinstall it
I'd try installing over top of itself and see if that got me any  love first.

Cliff all is working now ... I got the full version instead of the trial and it seems to show up and print actual pages!  Yay!
