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.

How to Get Apple Products Tax Free

Send Article to a Friend

If you live in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, South Carolina, or Tennessee, you will soon have a limited opportunity to purchase certain Apple products without paying sales tax, thanks to sales tax holidays provided by those states. Apple has published a list of the states, their respective holidays (generally August 1st, 2nd, and 3rd), and where to find your nearest Apple Store. The tax holidays will also apply to online purchases made by residents of those states.favicon follow link
