I use the Import to Selected Group and Delete script quite extensively, triggered as a Folder action when I add a file to the folder. At the moment it opens DTPO2, and I’m wondering what is the easiest way to modify/change this (if possible) so that the Folder action is tied to work with DT3. Or is there an alternative script I can use? I don’t see one in the DT3 script library.
I’m not script savvy, but could probably edit it if some kind soul could post easily followed instructions.
Thanks Bluefrog. I wasn’t intentionally trying to run DTPO2 on the same account, the folder action triggered it. The advice then, I take it, is to uninstall DTPO2 from my machine completely? I must have missed that when upgrading. From memory, uninstalling DTPO2 is not entirely straight forward, and I’d also be a little afraid of deleting something that DT3 relies upon – do you have a guide to deleting DTPO2 handy? I think I saw one on the forum recently, will have a look for that.
Returning to this, I’ve just changed computers and would like to reattach the Import to Selected Group and Delete script to a desktop folder. It’s one of my favourite little Devonthink actions and I use it daily.
It doesn’t appear under the options I’m given in Folder Actions Setup – the closest thing is Import to Selected Group. As far as I can remember I first obtained the script from this thread post a few years ago, but the zip file in that post can’t be downloaded anymore. I had thought that this was absorbed as a formal DT script, but perhaps I was wrong? I can’t seem to find it. Can someone point me in the right direction?
