Scott , Craig 

It would not save the pdf and the text was different for each stack.

The failing stack had ">" within the text , once removed the pdf saved !! cheers guys .

Is this a bug ?

Are you saying the "open printing to pdf" command itself does not work, or
that you get blank output? In other words, in the stack that does NOT work,
what happens if you:

  open printing to pdf "yourFilePathHere/xxx.pdf"
     revPrintText "Hello world" 
  close printing

This will eliminate any of the issues Scott mentioned, since you are using
simple text. But does a pdf appear on the desktop, and does it contain
"Hello World"?
