Photoshop: Not saving .PDF

This problem has been going for about 2 weeks now and it's actually affecting my work now.
I have to save some sheets in a .pdf format, but whenever I save them as a .pdf, nothing is saved, no error codes or anything, it just doesn't get saved.

I tried looking online and the only thing I find is things like a corrupt font, though I doubt Arial would somehow manage to be corrupt out of nowhere.

I really need help ASAP.

Thank you.

What have you done for trouble-shooting so far? 

Restoring Preferences after making sure all customized presets like Actions, Patterns, Brushes etc. have been saved might be a good starting point:

My settings were still in the default settings, I changed them to the settings of my supervisor after this problem started occurring without any results, I changed the "save in background" setting and it didn't do anything, I changed the image size / dpi / quality. I tried turning off "save for fast web preview." Nothing worked

Howdy Matthijs,

What OS are you running on?  Which version of Photoshop are you using?  As Christoph suggested, have you tried to reset your preferences?  Are you sure you've got free space on your hard drive and your scratch drive?

Answering these questions would be a good place to start.

Thanks,
David
