10.3: Record Finder actions in Script Editor
Authored by: diamondsw on Oct 30, '03 11:50:00AM

However, you still can't script things like setting thumbnail icon view, copy and paste of icons, etc. Someone correct me if I'm wrong...

10.3: Record Finder actions in Script Editor
Authored by: DeltaTee on Oct 30, '03 12:55:53PM

I have a script I am still upgarding from Jaguar which changes a window to icon view, maximizes the icons, then turns on the auto-thumbnail generation. The tricky part is doing the auto-thumbnail generation since that has to be done using the GUI scripting...

Send me an email or post here if you are looking for more information (or want a copy of the script).

10.3: Record Finder actions in Script Editor

I would *love* that. I have tried to use GUI scripting to get at the checkbox in question but couldn't quite make it work. Submit that puppy as a hint. :)

Of course, it would be nice if Apple went back and took care of loose ends like this. I'd love to see a 10.3.1 that fixes the firewire drive problems (reported elsewhere) and see 10.3.x fix and clean up a lot of these missing pieces.

While it does not support turning on the icon previews, my application Finder Window Manager can help with arranging your Finder windows to your specifications. You can find out more information from:

It's appreciated, but the only thing I want is turning on the tumbnails. Everything else I can AppleScript (and I guess with enough work I could use UI scripting to hack this too... Sigh)
