Try to Print>Save As PDF>Security Options and get no response when I click security options. Also Export>Encrypt also does not work. This within my Administrator account--has always worked until yesterday. In a Guest User account, it does all work.
Have removed .plist, restarted, etc., also reinstalled macOS Sierra 10.12.6. No luck.

Thank you to rate me 5 stars if you are satisfied of my work for you today :-)

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
