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.

Apple's 15" Portrait Display is the last of the company's original line of external Macintosh monitors, first introduced in 1987, to be removed from the product family. The vertically oriented greyscale display (Apple item M0404) is still available until existing supplies run out, but no more will be built. [MHA]
