Matt may be going to great lengths,
Sorry, I can print scripts to PDF. Works fine for me.
Same system: MacBook Pro, OSX 10.7.4
Since it happens with both V1 and V2 its probably not anything to do with the update. I'd check out the OS.
Macbook is only a week old with all updates installed.
Can you print a script to the printer, or does that also crash?
The "Save as PDF" mehcanism in the Print dialog involves the printer driver, so the behaviour may depend on which printer you have selected. Try setting up a different printer and see whether the crash is still happening when you Save as PDF.
If it works for a different printer, which printer model was selected which is causing the crash, and which driver version is it using?
System Preferences > Print & Scan > select the printer in the list on the left > Options & Supplies
The General tab shows the driver version number. The Driver tab shows the driver (and lets you pick a different one).
That was it!
The only printer i had installed was a network printer that i utilize at the office. Any time i attemped to save the script as a PDF i was not connected to that network.
When i got home this evening, i installed the canon printer that i have setup wirelessly and attempted to save the script as a PDf and it works without issue.
I would have never thought that saving as a PDF would be controlled by the printer selected but lo and behold it is.
