        Description

        When there are no printers installed to a system on macOS, it is impossible
        to print to a PDF file. The issue is reproduced on latest macOS (10.13.1) and
        latest Java version.

        It looks like the issue is not reproduced if a printer was added to the
        system, and then removed. So, as a workaround, one can add some printer to
        the system, and then remove it.

        As one reason to print to PDF is that one doesn't have a printer,
        so requesting an enhancement to be able to print to a file (PDF)
        even if there is no printer ever connected.
