Welcome to the QuickBooks Community, @Ron Boehly.

 

Let me share with you the options you can apply to the register in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT). Print, Edit TransactionQuickReport, and Download Transactions are the options that you can use. As a workaround, you can generate a report to save the register as a PDF.

 

Here's how:

  1. Go to the Lists tab.
  2. Select Chart of Accounts.
  3. Right-click your bank and choose QuickReport.
  4. Then select the Print drop-down arrow.
  5. Click Save As PDF (see screenshots for reference).

Thank you after a lot of conversation with support we came to the same conclusion I posted another question and attached my review response to them I am attaching the letter to you. In my mind they only had to say you cannot save a register to PDF you must do it in quick report I am fine with that the automated question should have told me that very simple put it as solution one if some one  types in can not save as PDF or how to save to PDF which I asked those very questions.

Thank you I have no idea why that solution is not in the automated question section of help. I could have saved hours of my life.
