A set of AppleScripts to create a scrapbook in Safari
Authored by: polymathic on Dec 06, '03 01:00:13PM

This is a great set of scripts. The scrapbook function was the only thing I missed from IE.

I do have one problem, though. I get this error:

NSReceiverEvaluationError:4

What to do? The pages are saved in the Scrapbook folder; but nothing in the bookmarks. I'm running 10.3.1.

Thanks for any advice.

I'm having the same problem in 10.2.8, so if anyone can suggest a solution it would be brilliant...

I am getting the same NSReceiver error using Panther. I know that GUIScripting is in Panther - but not sure if you have to activate it or not.

Also - a page was saved into my Scrapbook folder and upon looking at it I noticed that its straight html, but when you view it the images etc are pulled from the server they relate to. While this is cool, it would be even nicer if the images were embedded and required no online connection to view in its entirety. Much like IE does when saving a web page - it embeds the images directly into the file.

Maybe a better solution would be to use the above system but scrapbook the files as PDF's instead. Unfortunately unless you create PDF's through Acrobate Web Capture you will not get the clickable links - unless someone else knows a solution.

Yes but first you have to be able to GUI script the print dialogue in Safari (or any app.) I've not spotted a way in yet. Also saving files in pdf does not seem to be possible with Applescript through Safari.
