Ideas to reduce keyboarding
Authored by: sinjin on Nov 29, '05 08:38:20AM

I like what you've started here, very useful.

I don't have time to experiment with it right now but I suspect that since scriptable applications have a "save" command you could "tell the target app" to save to "to window 1 of the finder" without the GUI scripting complications. BUT have a try block that captures failures to save (what may happen with non-scriptable apps) and resort to the GUI stuff with extra keystrokes.

Just off the top of my head, not sure if it would work out quite like that!
