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.

WebSTAR 3.0.2 Update Released -- StarNine Technologies has released WebSTAR 3.0.2, a new version of the widely used Web server. WebSTAR 3.0.2 offers a host of under-the-hood fixes and enhancements, including significantly improved FTP and MacBinary compatibility, data cache improvements, numerous bug fixes, and workarounds for Open Transport memory leaks on PowerPC systems. WebSTAR 3.0.2 is free to WebSTAR 3.x customers, and a 12.6 MB updater will upgrade any version of WebSTAR 3.0 or 3.0.1 (including background and SSL versions) to version 3.0.2. Because updating Web server software can be complicated, be sure you have a complete backup of your current configuration and read StarNine's detailed instructions before updating. [GD]
