Microsoft Project – Saving large plans to pdf taking too long?

I was training at client site this week and they mentioned that if they tried to use File – Save As with file type pdf or File – Export to save a large project plan as a pdf, it takes ages. It could in fact be their Internet or server speed as interestingly I tried it at their offices and it did take ages but when I got home I tried again and it didn’t take too long at all!

However, if that happens to you, you could instead trying printing to pdf. This seemed to take less time. To do so, click File – Print, then from the Printer dropdown choose Microsoft Print to PDF or the equivalent. This should speed up the process.
