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.

Adam Speaking at NY City Area User Groups This Week -- On Thursday, 13-Feb-03 at 6:30 PM, I'll be speaking at the monthly MetroMac meeting at New York University, and on Friday, 14-Feb-03 at the Long Island Macintosh Users Group (LIMac) at the New York Institute of Technology. At both meetings I'll be talking about the most interesting products and events from Macworld Expo in San Francisco and answering questions about wireless networking, iPhoto 2, and anything else people want to ask. I should have signed copies of my books to raffle off, and I'll be happy to sign copies you already have. And yes, since Friday is Valentine's Day, that meeting will be a family affair: Tonya and Tristan are coming to the LIMac meeting. Directions to the meeting locations for both are on the groups' Web sites. [ACE]
