[SOLVED] Trying to make TextEdit workflow to open new window

Recommended Posts

Hello. I'm a newb to AppleScript and am trying to make a workflow to open a new TextEdit window, similar to this one made for Chrome: https://github.com/caiogondim/alfred-chrome-window-workflow .


Here is my current script:

on alfred_script(q)

tell application "TextEdit"
    make new window
	tell application "System Events" to set frontmost of process "TextEdit" to true
end tell

end alfred_script

Here's the workflow:image.png.8ec1cc6f26ffdcaa04af4fc281446da7.png


Calling it in Alfred with "tw" results in no behavior. Could someone please help me out?

Your script is wrong/not compatible with Run Script.


on alfred_script(q) is only for Run NSAppleScript (which you shouldn’t use).


For a regular Run Script action, just use:

tell application "TextEdit"
    make new document
end tell
