OS X :: Automator Applications - Folder Actions

Oct 5, 2009

I understand when I make an automator 'application', it appears and can be drug to the applications folder. But when I make a folder action, or a service or whatever, where does the action go (so I can edit it again, later) or delete it?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Set Up Automator Folder Actions

May 8, 2012

I have set up and sucessfully tested a workflow which sends any file found in a particular folder to the "paperless" app, then moves all files to a different folder called "Archived attachments".HOWEVER as a folder action, nothing happens when a file is put into the folder. The file just sits there in the folder. To create a folder action I opened "new folder action" in Automator, then dragged and dropped the working workflow file into the workspace, then set "Folder Action recieves files and folders added to" the appropriate folder, let's call it "Attachments".Just to complicate things, the files are placed into the "Attachments" folder using an applescript that captures all pdf mail attachments. This applescript works succesfully. [code]

OS X :: Automator Folder Actions - Delete / Remove Them?

Mar 31, 2010

I managed to fumble my way through my first Automator actions today and after some trial and error, came up with a folder action that does exactly what I want, very simply to move music from my downloads folder to a different location. I also created an Automator application to do the same thing as I wasn't aware my folder action will now do this automatically (so cool). Here's my question: I have a few folder actions that were created during my trial and error process. Where are these and how do I delete/remove them? I did a Spotlight search and nothing came up.

OS X :: Specific Folder Requires Authentication For Some Actions?

Apr 3, 2010

I'm new here but hoping I can find some helpful information for a new problem I have with OS X. Earlier today, I noticed that my Transmission was failing to download some torrents I was snatching. Transmission couldn't create the folders I was telling it to create for new CDs in my MUSIC folder. When I looked into the problem, I noticed that I no longer had the option to create new folders and several other modification options. I created a new folder on the desktop and dragged it into the misbehaving MUSIC folder and my MacBook asked me for my password to "authenticate". What's going on? I have not encountered this issue before and it is only effecting the MUSIC folder; all of the sub-folders are functioning correctly.

Applications :: Remove Automator Services And Folder Actions

Dec 16, 2009

I've been fooling around with Automator for a few hours trying to look for little ways it can handle my repetitive stuff. I've figured out some pretty neat tricks, but I also have a slew of unwanted folder actions and services in my context menus and for the life of my I can't figure out how to get rid of them. The folder actions are especially problematic since they mess with my files automatically. Googling it isn't turning up anything nor can I seem to find anything in Apple's help documents. Is this some kind of huge joke being played on me here or something? Has no one ever wanted to disable their automator tasks before or something?

OS X Technologies :: Running Multiple Folder Actions At Same Time

May 29, 2012

Does anyone have some experience running multiple folder actions at the same time?I've written a Applescript folder action that processes some files. When adding some files, the script starts and all goes well. The processing of each file takes a few minutes, but all files are processed correctly.However, when adding some new files to the dropfolder, while the folder action is all ready processing other files dropped a few minutes earlier, the process that is all ready running immediately aborts and the folder action is relaunched on the new files, leaving the old files for what they are.The same problem occurs with multiple folders, each having a folder action attached. When dropping files in "Folder A", the script starts processing. But if someone droppes files in "Folder B", The script of folder A aborts, and the script of folder B starts processing. When adding more files to the folders, the result is the same. In some casses, when the last dropped files are processed, the os continues where the operation was aborted on the previous files. But this not always happens. To make things worse, when you remove the items from the folders afterwords, the folder actions starts running again on items no longer present in the folder ..Does anyone know how I can prevent the folder action being aborted when new files are dropped and placing the new files in "Hold", until the previous files are processed? How can I prevent a folder action being aborted when a item is dropped into another folder?I've written a small script to test this behaviour. Just create one or more folders and attach the script below. Drop a item into the folder, wait a few seconds and drop another one in the same or another folder. To monitor what happens please check the console. [code]

OS X Technologies :: Handle IPhoto's "import Duplicates" Prompt When Using AppleScript Folder Actions?

Jun 1, 2012

I'm traveling tomorrow to Europe and am only taking my iPad and camera.  I'm planning on using an SD card reader to upload my photos/videos to my iPad, then use Dropbox on the iPad to copy my daily shots to my Dropbox account. I'm thinking that I'll have an AppleScript on my home computer's  /Dropbox/europe/  folder to look for newly added data and then auto import that into iPhoto. What's the best way to handle this? I got it working with a couple of test images but when iPhoto sees photos that it's already imported it asks me if I want to import in the duplicates or skip them.  I'd like to skip them or write the AppleScript in a way that handles this. I'm also fine with copying the photos out of the Dropbox folder into a separate folder elsewhere and not using iPhoto. I'm just trying to theft proof my data in case my iPad gets stolen or if my Dropbox goes goofy and deletes the photos.  Maybe copy newly added data to a designated directory outside of the Dropbox folder?  How can I do this?

OS X :: Compile 4 Actions Into 1 Button?

Jan 22, 2010

I recently pulled out my old Halo cd, and it looks great on my 13" MBP. I don't wanna lug around the CD all the time though, so I copied it as a .dmg to my harddrive. Every time I start Halo, I have to open Toast, mount the .dmg, close toast and then open Halo. Is there some way for these four actions to be compiled into a single button in for example the dock?

OS X :: Keynote - Making Two Actions Run At The Same Time

May 28, 2009

I have two objects in keynote that do about 14 moves each (spin and move) but I can not get them to go at the same time. The next one will only start when the first one ends. I can't move the second object to the top of the build order because when I do that it ruins all the spin/move steps. Want I kinda need is the ability to run step 13 with step one (whilst leaving the build order in the same rank)..unless somebody has got another way to do this?

Applications :: Automator Won't Delete Actions

Jan 20, 2010

I move an action into the workflow space. Now, I realize that I made a mistake (God forbid) and I want to remove that action. PLEASE tell me how in the world do I do that. I click on the 'x' in the top right corner and nothing happens. I click on it and press delete key. Zilch. I even drag it to the trash (out of desperation). Perhaps my Automator.app is corrupt. I can't think of any other reason I'm not able to delete an action from the workflow. How do I reinstall in Snow Leopard? I can't using the install disk because Automator is not one of the apps designated. Can I download it (the app)? I seem to be the only person in the universe that has this problem (not being able to delete an action). I've googled my fingers raw.

Applications :: Automator Actions Not Working In ITunes 10?

Sep 2, 2010

I really like iTunes 10. Clean, uncluttered, easily usable. BUT I have an automator action set for 7:30am every day as an alarm to wake me. This action plays a playlist in iTunes called "morning alarm" and has worked for months beautifully. When I loaded the action in Automator I got an error to say that the "play iTunes playlist" action, the auto iPhone sync action and set iTune volume actions we no longer valid. Those actions appear not to exist any longer in iTunes 10. Has anyone else had similar problems? Did you get a work-around?

Specifically I have the bottom right screen corner set to do Desktop Exposé when I point the cursor there, and I want to make a workflow to toggle this on and off. I've never used Automator before so I don't know a whole lot about it.

OS X :: Some Deliberate Actions Taking Place Automatically On Mac?

Mar 17, 2009

This morning, I was running late for work and while getting ready, I glanced over at my mac and noticed windows moving around. I initially thought that maybe it was a fluke, but then I looked closer and there were some deliberate actions taking place:, folders opening, folder being created on the desktop. I watched for a few seconds to try to figure out what was going on, but then I got freaked out and try to see if I could control the cursor, nothing. So I held the power button down and hard shut down my computer. I started it back up to see if everything was alright. I looked in the trashbin to see if anything was deleted recently, nothing. I shut down my computer and went to work.

- Does anyone have any ideas what this could have been? A trojan? A program installed by an untrusting girlfriend? etc?
- What can I do to protect/secure my computer?
- Are there any network log files on the computer that I could find an IP address of whoever this was?
- I have updated my computer recently (when itunes 8.1 came out), so I should have the most up to date security patches (for 10.5).

Anytime I do something on the dock that involves a noise happening (emptying trash, adium message, etc.) the noise isn't in sync with action. It is either way after or way before. This is only on my i7 iMac which I received yesterday. Again small issue but anyone have any ideas on this? Is this normal and I just haven't noticed it on any of my other (Leopard only, not SL) macs?

Software :: Roll Automator Actions - Drop .doc / .docx Files

Aug 27, 2010

I've been scouring Google for an Automator action that will allow me to drop .doc or .docx files into a directory and convert them to .odt, but so far I've had no luck. Can this easily be done or does it require a lot of programming knowledge to pull off? I really hope someone can help as this is a repetitive task that would save me a great deal of time.

OS X :: Can't Identify Alert Sound

I began hearing a sound about every minute that I assume is some kind of alert or notification that something needs attention but I can't determine what it is. It sounds like a single pick of a guitar string. I recently downloaded an upgrade to microsoft office but can't recall if it began right after that or not.
