10.4: Edit PDF actions in the Print dialog System 10.4
Tiger only hintWhen you print in 10.4, there's an updated PDF pop-down menu from which you can pick certain actions.

These actions are merely Automator workflows in the /Library/PDF Services folder. You can change these, or make your own very easily. You can even make your own Automator workflow, and save it wherever you want, and add it via the "Edit this Menu" option in the PDF pop-down button menu.

You can also include AppleScripts and aliases to apps that can open PDFs. They will then appear in the PDF pop-up. See this at Apple's site.

Plus shell scripts, Perl scripts and probably compiled programs too. Search on PDF Workflow on this site to find examples.

nb: if you can't get these to work, determine if you are a file vault user. For whatever reason, I found that my filevault user's couldn't use some of the pdf workflow actions, but other users on the same machine had no trouble.

In particular, it seems like "create pdf in web-receipts folder" would fail with a FV user.
