Printing to PDF (or using any other Bentley print driver) does not work if the file is opened from ProjectWise, and Managed workspace is used. The same behavior is also noticed if the file is opened using any other Bentley Power Platform Application (OpenPlant PID, Microstation, I-model composer, etc.).
Issue is caused because of an incorrect value for <DefaultPrintFileName> property in the Printer Driver Configuration settings. As all print configuration files are just imported to ProjectWise, without any changes in them, usually Default print file location is invalid, and it causes this issue.
<DefaultPrintFileName>$(MS_PLTFILES)$(basename(_DGNFILE))-$(MS_PLTMODELNAME)-<autoInc?digits=3?base=0></DefaultPrintFileName> to <DefaultPrintFileName>$(basename(_DGNFILE))-$(MS_PLTMODELNAME)-<autoInc?digits=3?base=0></DefaultPrintFileName>
