Microsoft Project 2010 Bug – Save As PDF

If you open an MS Project 2010 file (.MPP) from SharePoint, and try to save it as a PDF using the File > Save As menu, SharePoint opens the client File Dialog. If you select .PDF as the File Type, and then Save, the dialog closes, and a PDF options dialog opens. However, when you select OK on the PDF options dialog, the dialog closes normally BUT the PDF file is not created in the SharePoint document library from which the project was opened! Nor does it save anywhere on the client (that I can find).

The workaround is to use File > Save and Send > Create PDF/XPS Document.

This behavior is the same for MOSS / WSS 2007 and SharePoint 2010. File > Save As only appears to work for .MPP files (even if the name is changed). Using File > Save As with File Types XPS and Project Template files does not work either.
