Why is this needed?
Authored by: SOX on Nov 29, '05 10:51:06AM

Seems like for the same amount of work you could
1) click the finder icon to bring up the top most window
2) drag the title bar
3) if the save-as sialog is not visible then
3a) use expose
3b) or alternatively use command shift tab to switch back to the app
4) drop it.

Why is this needed?

If you look at Peter's solution above, you can do all of this with one keystroke now. Seems much simpler to me :).

But hey, it's always nice to have choices!

Insight into the power of Butler
Authored by: galaher on Nov 29, '05 01:03:04PM

I second that. I think that having choices is the key here. An operating system that lets you work the way you want, is one of the things that make the mac great.

I'd also like to thank Peter Maurer for his response. I found it did just what I wanted, but equally important, it was great to have a working example of some Butler features I didn't quiet grasp/understand. Great stuff! Thank you.

P.S. I use the Dvorak keyboard layout, and I found my Smart Item Keystrokes didn't map properly (I suspect this is an OS issue as Application Switcher and a few other processes seem to not honor alternate keyboard inputs/mapping as discussed elsewhere on this site). However once I realized this and I changed the keystrokes appropriately, butler worked as expected.
