An important question(which I don't know the answer to) is if the PDF writer is a standard printer in the terms of the MacOS CUPS printing system, or some 'extra' software outside of it. CrossOver talks to the printing system. So if it is a printer, it should show up there. If the PDF writer bypasses CUPS, it will not show up in the CrossOver printer listing.
Download and install CUPS PDF for OSX from codepoetry.net, which will appear as a additional printer both in OSX and in Crossover. It will allow you to print to PDF from Crossover rather than to paper. The resulting PDF files appear in a folder in OSX. I used this a lot when helping a Windows developer test his solutions in Crossover, not wanting to consume large quantities of paper while testing, allowing me to email him the results.
Works a treat. Let me know how you get on.

Please Note: This Forum is for non-application specific questions relating to installation/configuration of CrossOver. All application-specific posts to this Forum will be moved to their appropriate Compatibility Center Forum.
CrossOver Forums: the place to discuss running Windows applications on Mac and Linux
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
