Red When Excited has released Cloud Mate 1.5.6 with experimental support for OS X 10.9 Mavericks. More important for most users, the iCloud file management utility improves the way it informs you when iCloud Documents & Data syncing is not yet enabled, addresses a problem that occurred when Photo Stream files weren’t fully downloaded, improves Finder integration with older system software, and checks to ensure that there are files stored in the default location for applications that don’t include a user-defined default directory. For more details on Cloud Mate, be sure to read Matt Neuburg’s overview, “Cloud Mate: Turning iCloud into Dropbox?,” 4 April 2013. ($6.99 new, free update, 16 MB)
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.
