problem when exporting pdf

Post by tillywhim57 » Mon Jul 23, 2018 11:48 pm

Hi there
I transferred a tdr chart to pdf with no problem, but realised that I'd made a couple of mistakes in the original tdr chart, so I made the corrections, and started the transfer again. No problem until I got the expected "did I want to overwrite the previous version", and when I selected "yes", got the message " Cannot create file "............david foster a.pdf (4533)". Needless to say the (4533) was not on the previous version. Have I done something wrong?

Sorry to hear that you are having problems with TreeDraw.
To export the PDF file you simply use "File | Export | PDF", see:
You would not be able to overwrite the previous version if that PDF file was in use by another program (the reader usually). Because it has a number after the file name (4533) it suggests that the system may be trying to create an intermediate file and that is where it is failing.
I would try exporting the PDF file with a different name to see if that works.
