For all those who have been asking, Tonya is recovering nicely from her neck injury of five weeks ago. It's been a slow process, but luckily she has the luxury of healing properly. That means spending most of her time concentrating on getting better rather than dealing with life, and I think it's made a big difference. [ACE]
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.
