Noodlesoft has released Hazel 3.1.3 with a number of core and user interface changes to the file cleanup utility. The update features a number of fixes to the upload/connection code, including improved WebDAV support. The handling of symlinks and content matching with accented characters has also been fixed, as well as an infinite loop caused by formatting odd characters. User interface changes include the capability to set an initial folder for server browsing, the capability to enter a URL in the server field of the connection panel, additional VoiceOver labels, and a fix for actions that would not stick.

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.
