I'm running MS Office 2010 on Windows 7. The PDF Maker for Office worked great in Word, Excel and Publisher when I had Acrobat X installed. Now that I have Acrobat DC installed, the add-in will only work in Word and Excel. I am totally unable to load it in Publisher. I've tried a few reg hacks I found in various searches with no change. Will I be forced to downgrade to Acrobat X to get that functionality back in Publisher?

Given the relatively low usage of Microsoft Publisher in combination with PDFMaker (and perhaps the overall lack of a large ​Publisher ​user base), the decision was made to discontinue that support.

Your alternatives are to use Microsoft's own PDF creation capability within Publisher or to print to the Adobe PDF PostScript printer driver instance.
