Excel 2007 File Save as PDF bug

Hello
I have an Excel sheet with Graphs. Pinting it, it all comes out fine. Also,
using PDF printers it all comes out fine. When I use File, save as PFD
format, the graphs are not shown correctly : the size of the graphs are far
to big.
Seems to be a bug in the File save as PDF format function of Excel.
Can anyone confim this?
Thanks Felix

I am having the same issue. Seemed to pop up around SP2. Luckily I have the
full Adobe Acrobat so I can print via the pdf printer, but I have found it
does not work with the free pdf printers on line. Looks the same as when you
save as a pdf in Excel. I have posted pictures via Flickr.

UPDATE: I have found a free print to pdf driver that works. PrimoPDF can be
found at download.com.

Same issue here. I've been troubleshooting for two days. Has anyone
had luck with a workaround? I saw one mention of a driver download
but have not tried it yet.
