Saving as type PDF option not showing

I'm pretty new to Solid Edge, but as I understand there should be an option to save the draft as a PDF file in the 'save as' menu, however this isn't showing up.

 

Anyone know a way to fix this?

The PDF selection is in the drop down list in the save as dialog. You can also select Save As>Translated. Is this not happening?

Hi there @brizvi,

 

Did you also notice you don't have the IGES option available either?.....I wonder if it's a glitch in the registry.

 

What version of SE [& maintenance patch - if appliccable] are you using here?

This is because you are running the free 2D product.  Free 2D does not have the capability to Save As to PDF.

Good catch @uk_dave.

It would be helpful if more participants would include their workstation and software setup.
