No PDF button Answered

Is there any reason why I can no longer download PDF's?  I don't do many just occasionally.

Is the button missing, or do you get some sort of message?

The button is missing. But not on all instructables just a few of them.

That's odd.

If it's specific projects, best to drop an email to service@instructables.com and report a bug.

Here is one instructable without a PDF button:

If it's the same for you I'll do as you have asked.

Hmm, I see the download button (Just under the project title on this screen-shot).

(Here - I downloaded the PDF, you should be able to get it from this comment without even logging in.)

Downloading PDF's is a Pro feature. I can see you are already Pro at the time of posting this, so make sure you are logged in.

It only happens on a few instructables, not all of them.

I can see the download PDF button at the top, under the project name.

If you can't see that (and you are logged in), please try:
Disabling any script blocking add-ons to your browser, like Ad-Block, GreaseMonkey, or LastPass
Making sure you have cookies enabled for your browser
Clearing your browser's cache

After, refresh Instructables.com and try logging in again.

Did your "Pro-ness" disappear? The PDF button is only available to Pro members.

Nope! Fully Pro. The button is not missing on all instructables just a few.
