Re: Print to PDF no longer creates a file

Sorry guys, but none of Save, Ctrl+S or Ctrl+C have anything to do with saving Diagram Charts.
Save and Ctrl+S only save the GEDCOM data.
To save a Chart use Diagram > Save Diagram or Diagram > Save Diagram As > Family Historian Chart.
I bet when you closed the Diagram it asked if you wanted to save the changes and that is the clue it has not been saved.
Regarding the PDF printing, it is possible that the Family Historian PDF Nova printer driver or print spooling have been upset.
Se the FHUG Knowledge Base options for resetting those features:

Today, I modified one of my charts and went to print it as a PDF file. The print/save process seemed to work normally, but it never created the PDF file. In addition, it deleted the previous version of that file, which I intentionally wanted to over-write with my changes. That's not a big loss, except I didn't get the new file. I tried this several times being careful to check the options to make sure I was doing it the same way I've done it many times in the past. I even closed the program and rebooted the computer to see if that would fix the problem; it didn't. I'm using a desktop PC with a lot of memory and the very latest version of Windows 10. Does anyone know what's going on?
