10.4: An AppleScript to do a 'find by name' search
Authored by: cortig on Nov 15, '05 10:00:23AM

If the System is not used in English, then the script needs to be localized using the proper translations for "File" and Findů".
As fart as shortcuts are concerned, I use Keyboard Maestro to launch the script.

10.4: An AppleScript to do a 'find by name' search
Authored by: bkuestner on Nov 16, '05 10:32:28AM

I tried to localize for a German setup.

I replaced "File" with "Ablage" and "Find..." with "Find..." (and I also tried "Findů", i. e. replacing three dots with one triple-dot, and then I tried adding a blank space after the triple-dot in case there was an invisible space character in the menu).

But I still get an error message in exactly this line: "NSReceiverEvaluationScriptError: 4"

Any idea what the problem might be?

Thanks.

No . . .but you could download Laserlight, a free little app made from the script initially posted here that suggested using the clipboard to enter a word without that damn stuttering that occurs as you try to type the letters of a word but Spotlight's already started searching . . . and bypass the whole question. Hope this helps.

One thing you could also try is to replace the line with "File..." and "Find" with this:
click menu item -2 of menu 3 of menu bar 1
This ought to work as long as "File" (or its localized equivalent) is the third menu from the left and "Find..." is the last item before "Color Label".
