Question
In Final Draft 9 / 8 on Windows 10, I get an Error -20 when I save a file as PDF.

Answer

This problem was corrected by a free update to FD9 and does not occur in Final Draft 10. If you do not have 9.0.9 installed, see How do I update Final Draft 9?

Final Draft 8 will not be updated to address this problem. FD8 users should use this workaround:

  1. Choose Print from the File menu or File ribbon tab;
  2. In the Print dialog click the Printer Name dropdown menu to choose a printer;
  3. Choose Microsoft Print to PDF; (if this is not an option see I have Windows 10 and I don't have the Microsoft Print to PDF driver installed.)

  1. Click OK (do not click Print to PDF);
  2. Type a file name in, choose a location on your computer and click Save.
