    Does anyone know how to install the PDF printer? Like when I have a Word file and to make a PDF out of it, I click on the PDF icon and it brings up a lists of programs, then I press cancel and a windows pops up saying, "PDF Maker could not locate the Adobe PDF printer. Please install the printer on this machine". I already have Adobe Acrobat installed. I once saw at an Apple Store in the Print Center they had the PDF printer istalled, but I don't got that printer in the list....any ideas????

    Thanks!

    You have to have the full version of Adobe Acrobat installed--not the reader.

    Otherwise, you can output a .pdf file from any application just by using the Print... dialog and clicking on the Save as PDF... button and giving it a file name.
