Aaron/Kaleidoscope issues

a. Kaleidoscope and faxing Steven Callow writes: "When attempting to fax a document scanned by my Visioneer PaperPort, the instant I clicked on the Global Village Fax Center with the mouse, GV Fax Center crashed. After running a conflict test with Conflict Catcher 4, it was determined that the culprit was Kaleidoscope 1.6. After disabling Kaleidoscope 1.6, the problem was gone."

Of related note, Miro Copic reports that when using Global Village GlobalFax 2.6.2, if he hit a scroll button in the little window "Names," inside the Personal Address Book selection window, an unexpected quit occurred. Disabling Kaleidoscope 1.6 eliminated the problem. David Bassin similarly reports getting a system crash when trying to select a name from the Address Book.

b. Kaleidoscope and Quicken John Pollaro started getting "unexpected quit" errors when trying to access certain features of Quicken 7. Conflict Catcher isolated the problem as due to Kaleidoscope (version 1.5.1 or 1.6). Disabling Kaleidoscope indeed eliminated the errors.

c. Aaron/Kaleidoscope and Illustrator Meredith Lesley's Macintosh Graphic News reports on palette-related problems with the new Illustrator 7.0. One conflict involved the Aaron extension. Here at MacFixIt, Don Bright confirms this, noting that having Aaron installed led to bus errors when trying to save documents in Illustrator. Similarly, Christopher Hughes reports that Kaleidoscope caused system errors on Save in Illustrator 7 - although not on all Mac models.
