Microsoft has released Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac 11.3.6 Update, which addresses vulnerabilities in Excel and fixes a bug in Entourage. In Excel, an attacker could "overwrite the contents of your computer's memory with malicious code," according to Microsoft. The Entourage issue concerns data loss when using Microsoft Exchange public folders. Additionally, the Japanese postal code dictionary has been updated. The update, which can be applied most easily via the Microsoft AutoUpdate utility, is a 15.4 MB download and requires the Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac 11.3.5 Update to have been applied previously.
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.
