Save to frontmost Finder window without the mouse
Authored by: Peter Maurer on Nov 29, '05 10:29:02AM
Here's a one-click solution for Butler. This is a container which will run its contents whenever you press [shift]-[option]-[command]-[s].

Once you press that key combo, this is what Butler does:
  1. Fake a [shift]-[command]-[s] keystroke, which summons the "Save as..." dialog in well-behaved applications.
  2. Fake a [shift]-[command]-[g] keystroke to trigger the "Go to..." dialog.
  3. Run galaher's script, which is stored in an "AppleScript" smart item. This smart item is configured to paste its result when done.
  4. Fake a [return] keystroke to confirm the "Go to..." dialog.
Now enter a file name, press [return], and you're done.

Depending on your mac's speed, you might have to tweak the "Keystrokes" smart items' delays a little. And by the way, doing it this way will also preserve your original pasteboard content.
