10.4: Call Automator Workflows from Applescript

Not quite about this hint (which is cool by the way), but you can save your workflows as 'plug-ins' that can be run from the contextual menu. So while not quite like the AppleScript menu, it works just as well in my opinion.

10.4: Call Automator Workflows from Applescript
Authored by: valx on May 23, '05 09:30:24PM

I had played with the save as plug-in feature before, but I saw it was limited to only 4 or 5 applications. I just went back and looked and realized one of the applications is the script menu. So yes, you can make an Automator action available system wide from the scripts menu without calling it in an AppleScript. However, I launch most of my actions via LaunchBar and it won't run worklows, but it will run AppleScripts. Looks like I'll be able to run Automator workflows via LaunchBar using AppleScript. :-)
