I’m doing some research on automating workflows for a client, and I figured I’d need to brush up on my Applescript. Here’s a link to the Applescript Sourcebook, a fantastic collection of tips, tricks, and lists of scriptable applications. Through this page I realized I might be able to use the Automator to build my workflow—something I hadn’t even considered. Automatorworld has a pile of workflows and actions, although it’s weighted towards the Apple-authored applications.
Update: FontDoctor, the app I’m trying to automate, crashes with a -609 error (connection is invalid), even when I use the included scripts.
Update: This error simply means the Applescript can’t run because the application crashes.
