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.

In conjunction with the announcement of the iPhone 5 and new iPod models, Apple has released iTunes 10.7 to add support for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models running iOS 6 (scheduled for release on 19 September 2012). Additionally, it adds support for the latest iPod nano and iPod shuffle models. With no new features, iTunes 10.7 is just a compatibility stopgap until the next major release of iTunes appears in October. (Free, 157.33 MB via direct download or 163.3 MB via Software Update)
