    "Save as 3D PDF" checkbox missing

      Hi everyone!

       

      In Solidworks 2008 I used to have the checkbox "save as 3D PDF" in the save as dialog box.

       

      Now in Solidworks 2009 I can't find it anymore.

       

      I've tried to install Adobe Acrobat 9 first and then Solidworks... and tried the opposite too (first Solidworks and then Acrobat 9)...

       

      The only way I can do this is by saving my part and then going inside Acrobat and importing the .sldprt.

       

      Or by saving as a .u3d and then importing through Acrobat.

       

      Do you know if there is a way to do this directly??? I mean, exporting/saving/printing directly from Solidworks to 3D PDF???

       

      Here is my save as screen:
