  1. Hi Community- I just made a dead simple Automator script, and I was looking for a dead simple way to convert it to an Alfred Workflow. All it does is take the selected file in the Finder and archive/compress it as a zip in the same location. I saved it as a .app and it works ok, but ideally I'd like it to be an .alfredworkflow. What's the most straightforward way to convert Automator scripts as Workflows? Thanks, and sorry for the n00b question. T
  2. Hello, Some context I often deal with folder structures like this: top_project_folder section1_subfolder1 filename_a.png filename_b.png section1_subfolder2 filename_a.png filename_b.png section2_subfolder1 filename_a.png filename_b.png section2_subfolder2 filename_a.png filename_b.png And I need to transform them into this: top_project folder section1_subfolder filename_a.png filename_b.png filename_c.png
  3. I have a feature request, something that I REALLY MISS from Otto's Remote. Instead of going through the watusi of either: * Saving Automator workflows as "App" and then having to give permission to Accessibility in order to run, or * Storing the Automator workflows a separate directory and then embedding the "automator" shellscript command inside an Alfred workflow in order to run an Automator workflow... arrrgh, too much recursion. I'd like to do what I do in Otto: 1/ Make an Automator Workflow (not App). Reason: Automator has a bug with "watch me do" where the *Workflow*
  4. Hello all. Looking for some simple directions, as I'm not skilled at scripting in the least. I've had success creating keyword-initiated workflows that run Automator workflows on selected Finder items, but I am completely stumped as to how I should structure and then run an Automator workflow (or app) as the result of an Alfred "File Action". My successful Automator workflows (triggered by Alfred keywords) function because the targeted Automator workflows all begin with "Get Selected Finder Items". But for this new Alfred workflow (pointing to an image resizing workflow in Auto
  5. I’m fairly green when it comes to creating my own workflows, but more often than not I manage to figure things out. But in this case I am stuck. I’m using an app called DeskConnect on all my devices (laptop, iMac, iPad and iPhone) to send files, clipboard etc. from one device to another. If I want to open a pdf I have on my phone with my laptop, DeskConnect makes it seamless and easy. And even better: if I am on my laptop and google to find the nearest plumber, I can mark the phone number and send it to my iPhone (via an Automator Service). It pops up as a notification, and dials the numbe
  6. Hi, We have a large catalogue of product images and are frequently sent Excel spreadsheets listing which images are required to be gathered to be uploaded to our site. Our image files are located on different servers and have a 13 digit name with an _I1 followed by it, i.e. 9781520560331_I1. The images are usually jpegs or tif. I wanted to run a script on Auomator to look at the image name within the excel worksheet and look up the image by either using Finder or by me telling it exactly where to look and then copying the images into a folder setup on the desktop. I h
  7. [version 1.1 on GitHub does fix a regression that prevented multiple image selection] Hello, I have a Macbook pro retina. And every time I need to share a screenshot with friends or co-workers, I have to resize them as this screenshots will just be too big to be shared on their original size. Then I wrote this quick and dirty workflow that does resize you images selection while choosing your preferred percentage. Personally I usually use 40% ... When I say quick and dirty, it's because I use a build-in automator function that does just that for me. But I had to create as many "a
  8. Hi guys, I created a simple workflow to rename multiple files using an Automator script – here to download. I would like to extend this workflow by passing an Alfred argument to the Automator action which I use to rename the objects. Any idea how I can do this? Thanks in advance! Regards, Isger
