TidBITS Ranks in Second Best of the Mac Web Survey -- In the second Best of the Mac Web survey run by the Low End Mac Web site, TidBITS ranked as the 5th best rated site behind As the Apple Turns, VersionTracker, MacFixIt, and MacSurfer's Headline News. That's a significant jump for us from the first survey back in April, in which TidBITS ranked 10th. Significantly more people voted for TidBITS this time around (1,057 versus 694), probably due to our mentioning the survey in last week's issue. The survey is an unabashed popularity contest, but it is useful for learning about Macintosh sites you may not yet have discovered. [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.
