Summary

Cannot save as PDF in Filemaker 13 V3 update (Nor 2 or 1)

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

13

Operating system version

Mac OS X Version 10.9.2

Description of the issue

I am unable to save as PDF in ANY File that I open.  Even like when I use a Starter Solution file like Contact or anything else. 
I get the following error message:
“test.pdf” could not be created on this disk.  Use a different name, make more room on the disk, unlock it or use a different disk."

I can do a Save as Excel without a problem.
I can do a Save a Copy as of the file without a problem. 

The only problem is with saving as PDF which does not seem to work AT ALL. 
Please help!

Steps to reproduce the problem

I have FM 12 installed on the same computer and I can save in PDF there without a problem!  so the issue does seem to be relating strictly to FM 13.

Expected result

Regain the ability to save as PDF

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear
