Fixing Save as Adobe PDF Crashes

There have been many reported instances of the "Save as Adobe PDF" workflow crashing regardless of application, but precious few workarounds or resolutions. In troubleshooting, I discovered that there were three instances of the "Save as Adobe PDF.action" in three different locations: /Library/Automator; ~/Library/Automator; and /System/Library/Automator. By eliminating all except the version in /System/Library/Automator, the workflow started behaving, and I was able to cut PDFs directly from the Print dialog.

ScreenFlow 2.1.2

Send Article to a Friend

Telestream has released an update to its powerful screencasting application ScreenFlow. The new version increases the time limit for YouTube videos to 15 minutes (instead of 10) and corrects several other issues with exporting video. These and other bug fixes come just a few months after the 2.1 release of ScreenFlow, which added the capability to create all-in-one Flash video - including the video itself, the Flash player, and the necessary HTML - along with 64-bit audio capture support and automatic document saving. You can try the software for free, but exported movies will be watermarked. ($99 new, free update, 8.2 MB)
