Photoshop CS5: I can no longer print to a pdf rather than saving as a pdf. I used to! What happened the option is gone?

I prefer to print to a pdf rather than save as a pdf because it results in a much smaller file without losing the resolution. I have been doing it for years. Suddenly the option is gone from the print options. I try to save as a smaller pdf but my text turns into what looks like another language. Has anyone else had this issue? Did the option get removed?

I just gave this a try under macOS 10.13.6 High Sierra and while I can get to the Save as PDF dialog box it doesn't look like a file is actually generated.

If not saving as a Photoshop PDF, I usually jump over to InDesign or Bridge.  Although, that's certainly not as fast as saving to PDF from the print dialog box.
