Selecting pdfcreator as printer

When I “print” a document by selecting pdfcreator as the printer, it does not print.  However if I also start the PDFCreator program, the queue dialog box appears and the document processes correctly. Why doesn’t it work just from the printer selection?

I have 1.7.2


I can’t reproduce this here, did you do a fresh install or did you update?
Please try if uninstalling PDFCreator, rebooting your machine and reinstalling afterwards solves the problem. If not please enable PDFCreators logging by pressing F3 on the print monitor or selecting it from the “Printer” menu and post the resulting log here or mail it to us.
