A set of AppleScripts to create a scrapbook in Safari
Authored by: alajuela on Dec 08, '03 02:24:07PM

This is a really nice piece of work, but I am having an interesting experience. A couple of observations: (1) the instructions as written on this hint page are in conflict with the author's Readme file on his website. On this page, "scrapbook" is not capitalized, but in the ReadMe it is; similarly, the ReadMe says to save the scripts as Applications *with* a startup screen, but this hint page says the opposite [and seems to make more sense] and (2) instead of creating the bookmarks in the bookmark folders, it is creating them as standalone bookmarks in my bookmark toolbar. The Scrapbook folder in my home directory is getting the pages, but they aren't being placed in the bookmark folders.

Well, I discovered that the "capitalization inconsistency" in my previous post is not correct. When I searched for this hint, looking for "safari scrapbook," a summary of this hint was returned, and when I clicked on the summary, the full text was displayed. Of course, my hint search terms were highlighted in yellow, along with the code which creates capitalization & quote marks. When viewed without those effects, the hint correctly instructs the proper capitalization. My fault. Sorry. But the rest of my comments stand.

Well, duh. I've been trying to make this work inside my Bookmarks Menu Bar. But it doesn't work there. It does work, and just about flawlessly, when you create the folders correctly in the Bookmarks Collections List [lefthand column of the Bookmarks page]. Only other request: revise the script to load up fully embedded pages with images and links. That would be outstanding; right now, it is merely excellent. ;-)

What version of Mac OSX are you running? If you are running 10.3 could you tell me what the version number of Safari you are using? I've seen a posting elsewhere that says 10.3 uses Safari 1.1 and not 1.0.1. This might explain why people trying this on 10.3 can't make it work.

I'm using Safari 1.1.1 in OS X 10.3.1

Hope you can work this problem out. Such a good script idea!
