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.

Quicken Online Banking Updater -- Last week, Intuit released the Online Banking Updater for Quicken 6.0, which updates Quicken 6 from R2 to R5. The package includes an updater application plus new versions of some files that ship with Quicken. Intuit has made three versions of the updater available; the one you need depends on the version of Quicken you have installed (68K, PowerPC, or "Universal"). The updates range between about 2.5 MB and 3.5 MB; read the directions on using the update before downloading it.

In addition to online banking features, Intuit says the update fixes a "handful" of problems reported by customers, although it's not clear whether this includes issues reported in TidBITS-308. [GD]
