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.

FileMaker Pro 4.1v2 Update Withdrawn

Send Article to a Friend

FileMaker Pro 4.1v2 Update Withdrawn -- FileMaker, Inc., has withdrawn its recently released FileMaker Pro 4.1v2 update, which largely addressed ambiguities in the program's treatment of dates using two-digit years. FileMaker claims to have identified additional date-related issues that weren't covered by the previous 4.1v2 update and plans to release a 4.1v3 fix. In the meantime, FileMaker recommends anyone using FileMaker Pro 4.1v2 downgrade to FileMaker 4.1v1. [GD]
