Automator "Watch Me Do" Inconsistent?
by viciousvegetable - 9/22/10 9:45 PM
Goal: Use automator to import files into Adobe Soundbooth. With the "watch me do" recording option, I created the following events:
Click 'Adobe Soundbooth CS4' in the Dock
Click the 'Edit' Menu
File... (This is under the "insert" submenu from the "edit" menu)
Click the text field
Type '___Current Assets'
Select the row that containts '___Current Assets'
Select the row that contains 'Untitled Recording 18.wav
Sometimes it works, but sometimes, instead, the mouse pointer makes a very slow journey to the Edit menu and then, rather than clicking and selecting insert>file slowly goes down and to the left at 45 degrees for a couple inches and then hovers in that area. Sometimes after ~2-3 minutes the script finally stops and returns an error. Other times, after about 5 minutes, it's still running so I press the shutdown button on the computer.
Soundbooth has no key commands programmable to Edit>Insert>File so this must be done with mouse clicks. Any info on this bug and/or suggestions?
