I donât use Automator for much, but what I have successfully used it for is running AppleScript. One instance I created is for activating a script from a keyboard shortcut. The other created a service that runs a script from a context menu, such that if I right-click on a folder, and run the (Automator) service, it passes the name of the folder to the script it runs. Iâve tried using Automator for more than this, but it did not work out well.
I was using Autoworker for this, but I had a problem with it not recognizing some items that I defined with the '-define', and other things.
