Here's a workflow that uses Applescript UI scripting to save the currently open Keynote document as a PDF. It uses the print dialog rather than the Export... menu item to give more flexibility in the layout etc. I've tried to comment the script so that the selections can be easily customized. It stops once the Save... dialog is open, so you can change the filename before saving if desired. This was an interesting project, which will save me lots of mouse clicks in the long term. It's surprising how little Applescript seems to have been written for Keynote. --- Updated 2021-01-05 for Big Sur and Keynote 10 Updated 2014-01-31 to fix Applescript UI click issue introduced with Mavericks ( http://macscripter.n...=170632#p170632 for details ). Still only works with Keynote '09. Updated 2014-04-02 to work with Keynote 6 (finally Apple has restored Applescript to the new iWork!) There are now two keywords kpdf - for use with Keynote 6.2 k5pdf - for use with Keynote 5 (i.e. iWork '09 version)
Hello, since Apple has removed the Pages.app function to fill out placeholders by drag'n'drop a contact-card from Address-Book.app, I wonder if anyone has created a workflow to substitute this kind of function. I will try to describe the workflow by giving it the name "Contact to Pages" Workflow 1. Setup placeholders in Pages e.g. "city": - in Pages select a word and go to Menu -> Format -> Advanced -> Define as placeholder text - now switch to the right panel -> More and remane the Script Tag "None" to "city" 2. Fire "Contact to Pages" workflow in Alfred which will prompt another entry to search for a contact 3. After finding the contact hit "Return" and the contact data will be filled into the placeholders fields which contain the appropriate placeholders. - in this case only the "city" of that contact will be filled Do you get the idea? I think especially for people who need to write letters a lot using Pages.app, this would save a lot of time. (sorry for my bad english, I'm from Germany) I searched the forum and other resources but didn't find a workflow like this. My programming skills are not existing unfortunatly. Have a perfect week, Sascha
