We are having an issue where the cutePDF save as dialog box stays hidden until the user interacts (clicks some part of the screen or presses a key). It doesn't happen on all installations.

  • I'm having the same issues with the free download cutePDF 3.0 version with the PS2PDF converter. Any suggestions on how this can be corrected? It's really just a nuisance and was hoping there would be an easy fix.

Setting the display mode: 
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Custom PDF Printer\BypassSaveAs 
(0 = show Save as dialog box after spooling, 1 = do not show Save as dialog box.) 
Note: the values above are of type string (REG_SZ), not DWORD.

  • Is anyone still having this issue? we are seeing the same exact issue with CutePDF 3.0 on Win7 - as soon as a user prints to pdf the 'save as' dialog box stays hidden until a mouse click or keyboard press. These reg keys did not seem to solve the problem
    • Free version of CutePDF does not support this option..

      This option is available in PDFCreator (Freeware) under Printer->Options->Programs->AutoSave
