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.

This issue has reached you extremely early because we're going to be enjoying ourselves on vacation back in New York State. Luckily, we've had a lot of excellent submissions from around the world, so I didn't have to kill myself to put this issue out. You can thank Murph Sewall, Mark H. Anbinder, Ken Linger, and Matt Neuburg for this issue.

Please feel free to send me mail this week if you wish, but since I will not be dialing in to check it, I won't see it until the 5th of July when we return. Incidentally, that means that we probably won't send out the 06-Jul-92 issue quite on time. It also means that submissions for that issue will be especially welcome. :-)
