  • I found the answer.

    Some tasks in this mpp is using custom font style and this font style is not supported by printer. so MS Project is crashing when printing a view to PDF

    This is working after applying default font style to these tasks

  • Hi,

    1. Install the latest Project update and check the behaviour.

    2. Login to the same machine with a different user account and try to save to PDF and check the behaviour.

  • Hi Naveen,

    For printing update your printer drivers. Install updates for adobe reader.

  • Try setting the print options and views for different output.  Does it still crash?

    Try creating PDF using a different project.  Does this crash?

    Cheers
