We have a user who continually has crashes when exporting to PDF for certain projects. The user is running the newest 16.1 update and the issues only started when they updated to 16.1 on the morning of Feb 4th. Reinstalls don't seem to change anything. Is anyone else having this issue only after updating to 16.1?
