    Microsoft "Print to PDF" prints out Garbage

    Hi,

    To better assist you regarding Microsoft Print to PDF, we just have a few questions for you:

    • What are the documents that you're trying to save as a PDF file?
    • Can you provide us a step-by-step screenshot of how you print your documents as PDF?

  3. Printing a pdf file

    The printer is 'Microsoft print to pdf'. Are you sure I should be trying the above steps???

    Anyways, on attempting the above, 'Microsoft print to PDF' was not listed in the programs while running the compatibility checker!

    I tried "troubleshooting printing" option again today and it got stuck at 'checking for spooler service errors' and would not go ahead at all! I do not know if this could give you any clue as to what is going wrong!
