  1. Is there a way to sequentially feed different file names through Alfred’s replace utilities and then apply them to the appropriate files at the end? By way of background, I have a workflow that I’ve been using religiously for a few years which takes a file name and then feeds it through numerous replace utilities to help me name the research-related articles on my computer in a consistent manner (mostly pdfs). As you might imagine, each individual replace utility is specific to a particular source or naming convention from my field (fixing commas, odd characters, capitalization issues based on where I download them from, etc.). The workflow is a real lifesaver, as it’s helped me take control of my research in ways that I just hadn’t done a good job with prior to using Alfred. My central problem with the workflow is that it only works with one file name at a time. In short, the workflow either grabs the name of selected file from Finder, DEVONthink or a File Action, then it pushes the name through a series of replace utilities, and finally it applies the cleaned up name to the selected file once its done (depending on its source - Finder/DEVONthink/File Action). Since I imagine that others are transforming text in a similar fashion with Alfred’s replace utilities, I was wondering if anyone might know how to best approach redesigning my workflow to operate with more than one file name at a time? Is there a way to match the original and new (post-cleanup) file names so that I can apply them to the correct files? Does anyone know of another workflow that uses a similar technique or that might help me better understand how to approach this issue? Thanks in advance for any help you can lend! I really appreciate it.

  3. workflow request: As I often use local url and demo server url, so I have situations when I need to change url from: www.simple-example-demo.com to www.simple-example.dev or another custom local url (www.s-e-d.dev and etc). If anyone can create workflow with: url replace or .com replace or when I paste url it's converted to local automaticaly (like creating url store (in/out urls)) ? Thanks.
  4. Here's a little something I made to replace the preferences files of InDesign, after a crash and a reset of the preferences. You can read a little bit more about this problem on the Adobe Forum. You’ll just need to replace the path with the one where you store your backuped file in the script info. Download http://d.pr/f/am0h
