    'Save as pdf' and nothing happens?!?



      I encountered a problem with saving PDF from Illustrator files. I open/create an Illustrator *.ai file and when I choose 'Save as' it seems nothing happens.

      However when I press 'Enter' a PDF with the default options is saved. Now I would like to change these options, but how without seeing the dialog? It happens with all my files (several/one artboards, different color  modes,etc...) I have tried everything to get my dialog back but no chance!

      This is what I have tried:Rebooting, ReInstalling Illustrator, ReInstalling Destiller, ReInstalling the whole Design Suite

      System: Win7, CS4.

      Any help is appreciated!

          The dialog box is outside the screen. You may increase the screen resolution, drag it to the centre, and reduce the resolution again. There is another way I am trying to remember.


          Ah, there it was: Harron normally says it: Move (or hit M) and use your arrow  keys to move the  dialog box back on  screen.
