Much easier!
Authored by: ronnythefiddle on Jan 10, '07 08:22:45PM

I'd like to thank both MurphyM & tice for their combined efforts!

You see, though it may be quicker/easier to use tice's example, in fact the combination of MurphyM's example and tice's teaches (relatively) newbie Mac users keen to expand our knowledge (& reduce the 80/20 effect a few percent!) a thing or two.

In this case how to achieve the same thing using automator for those who can't be bothered/don't have time to learn the applescript basics v the no. steps required/power/flexibility etc of making the effort to learn.

MurphyM encourages us to try using several cool features which (like me) many may have seen but not used because they have no idea where to start. Whereas tice shows us that with some effort we can all improve on our newly found knowledge, and in some lucky situations within a few posts on the same forum!!

But seriously, it's just this sort of info that inspires experimentation and eventually increased understanding.

Either that or a buggered computer!
