Title says it all. A simple four step macro and a more complex one both convert pdf files to TextEdit when you are using the action to change the name via a variable. There is nowhere in the macro where it is being told to alter the file type. Unfortunately, the file cannot be accepted as a TextEdit and must be converted back. I don't want to upload the macro because it is folder specific etc. the whole macro to see the effect is:
1.Prompt for File, set variable: File
2.Open %Variable%File%, with default application (which is Preview)
3.Prompt for user input, Title: Name, Prompt: What customers name do you want to fill the variable FileName?, Variables and Default Values: FileName
4.Move or Rename File %Variable%File%, to %Variable%FileName%
If you recreate this, the pdf you start with will end up a TextEdit file. No good. Thanks for any help.
