An AppleScript to send an email about a page in Safari
Authored by: brucio on Feb 06, '08 11:19:34AM
Yikes! Now I get an Applescript error: "Mail got an error: NSReceiverEvaluationScriptError: 4"

with "index" highlighted at "set index to 1"

Any ideas what that's about?

An AppleScript to send an email about a page in Safari

I get that error if I Run the script from Script Editor. However, if run from the Scripts menu in the menu bar the error is not generated.

I still have problems with the script.

I corrected the contents back to the original script with the additions of the backslashes, noted by the OP. Complies just fine. Save it.

Highlight some text in Safari. Run the script, Mail comes to the front. Doesn't create a new message.

Yes, I was trying to run it from Script Editor. Fixed. But now I have the same problem; Mail.app comes to front, but no message.

I can't respond to the "Mail got an error: SReceiverEvaluationScriptError: 4" issue or the message not created problem, since the script works on my machine. For what it's worth, I use Script Editor 2.2, Applescript 2.0, and OS X 10.5.1.
