I am on mac latest (m3 chip) and using latest Illustrator 28.0.0. I want to print colour page separations to pdf (printers seps) but I only have postcript file available in printer and no ppd. The scaling is not available in print dialogue box either and obviously the separations host based is not available either. I do not have a printer connected to mac. How do I rectify this as I have searched for answers but topics are alll ancient.

Hi, I spoke to an agent at adobe and was directed to download the ppd for pdf. Directly loaded ppd in print dialogue box and problem resolved. So my mac was missing the pdf ppd - ADPDF9.PPD

Good to hear that support could help.

For those who want to know the location of the ppd, here is a discussion from some years ago:

in the future, to find the best place to post your message, use the list here, https://community.adobe.com/

p.s. i don't think the adobe website, and forums in particular, are easy to navigate, so don't spend a lot of time searching that forum list. do your best and we'll move the post (like this one has already been moved) if it helps you get responses.
