BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) while printing to PDF

I have just ran into an issue while printing a drawing to PDF. If I have any Text in the drawing being printed it crashes my PC (BSOD).
I had created a parking lot drawing and had printed several times to a PDF. After review of the drawing, some changes were required and I attempted to print again to a PDF and my system crashed with a "Stop Error Code". I then began to determine that it was the text in the drawing that created the faults. To verify this I changed all of the text to graphics and it printed to PDF without crashing. I was able to print to a physical printer with no errors. Have any of you ran across this issue crashing your system?
Thanks,  Jake

I then began to determine that it was the text in the drawing that created the faults.

A lot of my files originate from V14 or earlier TC versions...
I now mainly use V21.
The Text can give strange results when i use V21 to modify files from earlier versions.
(This is not confined to a V21 issue, as i have other versions)

Solution is to just Create a Blank new file.
Select all / Copy n paste via the menu (not via RH click of mouse) from old file to new file.
Recreate your viewports and paperspace.

The New File should now be stable and good to go.
