Purple pdf compositor Apps
[Editor's note: The cause and solution have been identified - see the comments for details!]

For a while now, I have been having a problem with the PDF compositor that comes with OSX public beta. What happens is whenever I open it, I get an unusually large window where half of it is filled with a weird pink/purple color wth the other half being those OSX stripes and it won't let me do anything except quit. any help would be appreciated. thanks.

I have the same problem, must be a known bug. Doesn't really bother me tho, I can't think of any use for the PDF Compositer.

PDF problems

Don't forget to log them at Apple's Feedback Area.

Out of curiosity, do the purple lines start at the left side of the screen or are they confined to the PDF window itself? I read somewhere about Powerbook screen problems.

This only happens if you are running with Millions of colors (at least on my machine). If you switch to Thousands of colors and relaunch the app, it should work fine.
