    Good day, everyone!

    I am just wondering if anyone can shine some light on why my Mac Microsoft Word 2011 would not let me save docx to pdf.

    Word works fine (apart from intermittent crashings) and when I try to save it as pdf, the option is there and it looks like it is saving. There is no error message but it just never saves.

    Does anybody know a quick fix?

    Office 2011 is no longer being supported by MS, could be some recent updates to macOS are killing functionality.

    You might try Save as PDF from the Print menu.

    I never use that command. I always use the Print dialog box to save to PDF.

    MS Office 2011 continues to work in High Sierra 10.13.3 with or without MS support. That should have nothing to do with saving to PDF.

    This. The proper way to save to PDF is thru the print dialog.

    Oh, Microsoft Office 2011. Those were the days. I loved using Word back then, but after gong back to school I got offered the 365 subscription for free. It ruined my view of the 2011 version, its difficult to go back now.
