I have a script to edit a document in Pages and everything works fine until I want it to export the document as a PDF and it just... doesn't. I have it generate an ENTER keystroke and nothing happens.
Is this some sort of timing issue? Has anyone else encountered a program like Pages just not responding? And how would I solve this?
Hi @gmark, could you post your actual macro so we can take a look at it?
You can use AppleScript to export the front document in Pages as a PDF. Here's an example:
Download Macro(s): Test Export PDF from Pages.kmmacros (2.5 KB)
- Macros are always disabled when imported into the Keyboard Maestro Editor.
- The user must ensure the macro is enabled.
- The user must also ensure the macro's parent macro-group is enabled.
- macOS 10.15.7
- Keyboard Maestro v10.2
For simplicity you need to specify the full path of the output (pdf) file in the red-coloured action so don't try to use the one I've used as an example just for testing on my system.
