Whenever I save my PSD file as a PDF (see below for links), the bottom 6 bullets on the 1st job title listed do not save on the PDF. Any ideas as to why this would happen and how to fix it?

  • While this is doable in PhotoShop, it's not ideal and is the type of job that inDesign is much better at. You'll run into less unexpected issues. Commented Sep 3, 2017 at 10:59

This usually means you have an invisible character that PS can't recognize. I did check your PSD and all the layers with problems were 7, 7 copy, 7 copy[n] so you probably had an invisible character in your layer name, then when you copied it, you reproduced the problem in each layer.

I tried copying your layer 5 instead, and it worked just fine, which is evidence of a problem in that layer named 7 . I'm not providing the PSD because I'm not sure if it rendered the same (for example, I don't have your linked assets), but just do as I said and it will work.

Additionally, Photoshop uses to have issues when rendering to PDF, so a quick trick to make sure you get the same look is to create a layer by using ctrl+shift+C and then ctrl+v. This will copy/paste what you see in your document, so PDF will look the same. And of course, you keep editability of document
