    Hi all,

    I tried to export a Word file to a PDF using the PDF toolbar and my printer utility started bouncing in the dock so I opened it and then deleted the PDF file I saw since I thought it was going to print my long document instead of making it a pdf...I deleted PDFmaker instead of the print job! How do I re-install it? I can't even create a Word--> PDF in Acrobat Professional...Thanks!

    What did you do to 'delete' PDFMaker? Just deleting something from within the Dock shouldn't remove it from your machine. If you do a spotlight search for 'pdfmaker' what do you come up with?

    Hi, I didn't delete it from the dock - I deleted it from printer setup utility by accident.

    Ahh, I see. That's a pain. I'm not sure exactly where those files are stored, but I'd recommend using Pacifist to see if they are on your OSX install disk. That would be my first guess.

    Edit: can you simply add it again from within the Printer Setup dialog?

    would it be easier just to reinstall Acrobat Pro? Can I do that without re-installing all of CS2?

    You might be able to do that, yes. That's a better guess than looking for the OSX install disks. If you use Pacifist, you might be able to just extract the pdfmaker files, rather than installing all over again.
