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 Announces $233 Million Profit and 2-for-1 Split -- Last week, Apple Computer announced a $233 million profit for its second fiscal quarter of the year. Although the results contain a $73 million gain from continued sales of ARM Holdings, plc., revenues for the quarter were up 27 percent from the same quarter last year, and gross margins were up to 28.2 percent. Apple moved over one million units, and international sales continued to account for just over half of Apple's total revenue. In addition, Apple's Board of Directors has approved a two-for-one split of Apple's common stock, effective 21-Jun-00. Apple's stock has been over $100 per share for most of the calendar year 2000; Apple's last stock split was in 1987. [GD]
