Trying to Print to PDF. Picked an earlier version of the file to overwrite and got proper 'do you want to replace dialog'. However, failed to note that the old file was open before clicking OK. Rather than error that file could not be written, Workbench became non-responsive and had to be force quit.

How to repeat:
Try to print to pdf overwriting an existing file when the existing file is open in Acrobat.

Suggested fix:
Capture the file lock and let the user know.

Many thanks for writing a bug report. This is not related to MySQL Workbench it is related to Microsoft Windows.
