10.5: Use Automator to create 'sticky' folder views
Authored by: tpierry on Nov 21, '07 09:27:53PM

Since submitting this hint, I have discovered an issue you will need to be aware of if you use it. If you apply one of these view setting workflows with only a single folder selected, and that folder is not directly on the desktop, the view will not stick. The view will be changed temporarily, but the 'always open in ...' view option will not be applied to that folder. This is not really much of a problem, since setting only a single folder at a time can be easily done by bringing up view options and clicking the checkbox, but if you are unaware of this peculiar quirk you will be confused when it fails to work as expected.

The intent of these workflows is to facilitate applying sticky views to multiple folders at a time. Used for that purpose, they work as described.
