    Easy to install, but no indication on first use of where destination output files are going to be written - I thought initially, nothing at all had happened when I 'printed' my first output. I'd love this to work, but it simply doesn't. As for some other reviewers, I can't get PDF Writer to work on El Capitan - it writes only zero byte files, and you can't select either output file name or location. Limited response to support requests, and no indication in download source that it won't work at all in El Capitan (and maybe not even on Yosemite)

    Install is going well and a little bit strange that you can not change the default output directory. Then you get Sandbox Errors in OS X El Capitan, which result in empty .pdf files. In the log it says: [ERROR] error in creating pdf from input stream

    confirm no longer works in 10.11 - the "Lisanet PDFWriter" options never appears in the 'use with' option during install.

    running 10.8.5 on iMac 3.06 GHz Core 2 with 12 GB RAM doesn't work for me - acts like it's working - at end all I find is broken alias to PDFWriter folder

    Mac OS X v10.8.5 on a Macbook Pro The Readme.pdf for the PDFwriter for Mac indicates that the PDF files are saved to /Users/Shared/PDFwriter and that to go to /Users/Shared/PDFwriter to "please open Finder, select your Macintosh HD and then go into Users - Shared - PDFwriter". I'm new to the Mac OS X, but for the life of me I cannot find this directory on my harddrive. After I open "FInder", there is no "Macintosh HD" to select. All I see is a list of "Favorites" (including my documents which does not include the PDF folder), a list of shared devices (printers & other computers), and my devices (external drives). And when I search for the folder, my Mac does not find one. Any help?

    Sorry Simone, do not wish to be critical. I downloaded this. I then ran it on a Word file on my Mac (Office for MAC 2011). It says in the write up that it produces much reduced files sizes compared to the standard Apple PDF printer, but it produced exactly the same file size (14.3Mb from a 1.2 Mb word file). I would really love this to work as I do not want to pay £500 for Adobe, just to produce a PDF. Any suggestions?
