Lightroom 4: PDF Save as function not working in Print Module

Save as PDF in the Print Module isn't working. I have tried it as many ways as I can think of and it worked only once out of 30 tries. Help!!!!

Hey All,

I am trying to create a PDF from the Print Module. I created a Contact Sheet Template which saved to Users Templates. It is a 5 x 5 image set with 50 images, so two pages. My boss asked if he could get a PDF of it. I said sure. I mean how hard could that be. It was always simple in Bridge. Lightroom 4 should handle it easy.
I went to the bottom left of the Print Module to Print Settings. The pop up window appeared and in the bottom left there is a drop down for PDF. I selected Save as PDF. The Save pop up window appears and I tell it to save to the desktop. I renamed the file and clicked save. Nothing. I was back to lightroom 4 and no PDF on the desktop. I tried it numerous times and only once did it finally work. I have no idea why. I though maybe there is a bug in the bottom left Print Settings button because when it did work I used File>Print Settings which brings me to all the same pop up windows. No matter what I did I couldn't get it to save a PDF.

Any help on this would be great. I'll need to be doing contact sheets like this for 100's if not thousands of images and it would really be convenient.

Thanks,
Stephen

PS: I did download the 4.1 update hoping that was the issue.
