Why can't I plot my files to PDF?

Hi, would like to know why i cannot plot my Revit Project Files to PDF when i am working. It only gives me the option to print to "FAX" or to print to "Microsoft XPS Document Writer".


Why is it doing this? Adobe Reader 9 that i have installed on my Toshiba laptop works fine all the time when i am plotting from AutoCAD, but when i attempt this in Revit I do not get "PDF" as an option.


Other in the studio can do this fine, and i would like to be the same as plotting to PDF is import so can be imported to Photoshop, etc.

Revit is not like AutoCAD.

If you  want make a .PDF from Revit you must install a soft like PDF CREATOR to do it.

Then use the print option to make your PDF.
