Even though the PDF driver in Print Shop 23.1 has been tweaked to make it more compatible with Windows 7 than earlier versions of Print Shop, it is very important to keep in mind that the PDF driver which is installed with Print Shop 23.1 will work correctly ONLY when Print Shop 23.1 is the last Broderbund/Encore product to be installed on Windows 7.
If one of the following Broderbund/Encore products
* Print Shop 23 or earlier
* PrintMaster 18 or earlier
* Calendar Creator 12 or earlier
is installed AFTER Print Shop 23.1, that program will install a Broderbund PDF driver which will overwrite the Print Shop 23.1 PDF driver. Then, the 'Save as PDF' option will no longer work for any Broderbund/Encore product - because the Broderbund PDF driver which is installed with older Broderbund/Encore products is not compatible with Windows 7.
If the 'Save as PDF' option in Print Shop 23.1 doesn't work even when Print Shop 23.1 is the last Broderbund/Encore product to be installed on Windows 7, you *might* be able to fix the problem by clicking on the link below
then following the directions in that Technical Note.
To work around any difficulties which occur when the Save as PDF option is selected on Windows 7, I always recommend that users install an alternate PDF driver, then 'Print to PDF' instead of 'Save as PDF' - as is described in this FAQ
