10.5: Use Automator variables anywhere in a workflow
Authored by: uurf on Jul 30, '08 07:53:46AM
Boy I wanted this to work, but it seems like the "Filter URLs" action still doesn't like:
Filter URL
Whose:
Entire URL contains $(D1C5DF26-7B62-46B1-AC1E-20D2A791D63F)
where $(D1C5DF26-7B62-46B1-AC1E-20D2A791D63F) is the UID for a Variable "Today's Date". Is there something unusual about the Filter URLs action?

10.5: Use Automator variables anywhere in a workflow

I have the same issue with <b>Find Finder Items</b>. If you look at the results before and after the <b>Set Variable</b>, you'll see the Applescript equivalent is enclosed in curly brackets, thus it's no longer a string but a list.

I wish that I didn't have to solve all my Automator issues by just writing the whole thing in Applescript...
