This isn't really a hint
Authored by: SeanAhern on Dec 03, '03 06:08:32PM

I mean, this solution works for any number of application problems. I recently used the "Delete Library directory" or "Delete Library/Preferences directory" to fix a problem where ISO9660 CDROMs would not mount. Having fast user switching to a "test user" was very useful to this debugging process.

But I wouldn't expect to see a tip every time someone uses this technique to debug some problem.

I don't have any issues with PS opening files and haven't seen any on the various mac forums I visit. So this bug isn't widespread I don't think and is more of a work around then hint.

I think it is a great hint. The problem is wide-spread enough to include me.


(The cost of online storage is plummetting, so why get so picky on what is considered a hint? I say as long as everything is indexed as nicely as it is on this site, the more the merrier.)

You will find that there are many users on this site that are very picky about hints actually being hints. I don't understand why this is so because it's not like we are in competition for posting "hints" or whatever.
