It should be there. look for Save As Translated --> Adobe Acrobat Documents or Adobe Acrobat 3D Documents.

So this is only from draft?,...or are you not seeing the Save As *PDF & *3D PDF in the model environments either?

Before we go digging around can you confirm one thing for me? Your original question says "export in PDF format". I would like to confirm that "export in" does NOT mean that you are looking to open a pdf in Solid Edge.
Also that you are using Windows 8.1 and not Windows 8?

Hi

Once again thank you for your reply.

My first answer regarding PDF is that I need to export pdf files from Solid
Edge.

The second answer is that I can confirm my operating system is Windows 8.1
and is the 64 bit version

Thanks
