Export to Bookends' iCloud Folder


Is there a way to do this? ie. Modify the Export to Bookends script so that the file in question goes to a folder on iCloud Drive? Reading over previous posts, I have reason to suspect that this might not be possible, so I wanted to check.


You can edit the script and change the deconsolidate line to…

deconsolidate record theRecord to "~/Library/Mobile Documents/iCloud~com~sonnysoftware~bot/Documents"

Fantastic! I had tried to do this, but my path name was off. This fixed it. Thanks so much!

You’re welcome. :slight_smile:

I changed the line

deconsolidate record theRecord to “~/Library/Mobile Documents/iCloud~com~sonnysoftware~bot/Documents”

However, when I execute the script “Export to Bookends” in DTP3 it creates a entry in Bookends, but the attachment is not copied to the respective iCloud folder. The attachments tab displays “Cant’t find file ‘xyz.pdf’”.

Just to mention, I have added two folders holding the pdfs on my MAC via “index folders and files”.

Would you have an idea, why the PDF is still not locate to the iCloud folder and linked with the reference in bookends???
