SoundJam MP 1.1.1 Adds Mac OS 9 Support -- Casady & Greene has released SoundJam MP 1.1.1, a free update to the company's all-in-one MP3 player and encoder (see "That MP3eaceful, Easy Feeling, Part 2" in TidBITS-501). Despite the small version increment from 1.1, SoundJam incorporates a number of changes and bug fixes. Most important, SoundJam 1.1.1 offers compatibility with Mac OS 9, improved encoding options, enhanced shuffle ordering, support for multiple tracks in certain streams, and a Get Info command for the current song in the Player window. The update is a 1.5 MB download. [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.
