Custom options in Adobe PDF printer are not showing up in "Default Settings"

I am using Windows 7 and I am trying to create custom "Default Settings" in my Adobe PDF printer. When I make edits to an existing setting, click "Save As..." and save with a new filename, the new settings are not showing up in the "Default Settings" drop down box in the "Adobe PDF Settings" tab of the "Adobe PDF Document Properties" dialogue box. I can confirm that the new settings are indeed saved on my hard drive and are located in:

C:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe PDF\Settings


No matter how many different custom settings I save as described above, they are simply now showing up. This works for me on other computers, but just happens not to work on my current one, which recently had an OS reinstall from scratch. Prior to the reinstall, it worked just fine on my computer (an ASUS UX31A laptop). The included pictures demonstrate what I'm talking about.


Any thoughts?

    Do they show up in Distiller? Have you rebooted?
