I get this error each time I tried to export to PDF.
"IOError: General Photoshop error occurred. This functionality may not be available in this version of Photoshop. -"

I have the latest version of Photoshop, why am I getting this error every time I tried to export to PDF.

All PDF functions like "automate to pdf" "save as pdf" are not working. It shows errors like "could not save because of a program error". So sad, this has lingered for days.

Howdy Louis,

Do you get this with all files or just this one?  What PDF settings are you using?  Default?

Where are you trying to export to? Have you tried exporting to someplace simple like the desktop?
