I'm creating a work around for a bug in the app Finale.
It gets confused when creating a PDF, and swaps the current filename out for the name of a random minimized window in the dock.
The goal is to create a macro that pastes the correct name as the PDF is created.
Is there an elegant method to get the file name of the front window?
Right now I'm opening the Save All... menu and copying it from there, butthere must be a cleaner method.
I don't know if this will help but while stepping through playlists in VLC I often want to delete the file that's playing and this is how I get its name:
As I don't have Finale I can't try it out.
I cannot find this action, so as a novice KM wizard, where is it or do I have to ask Dumbledore?
It's a plugin - located here:
Thank heavens Dumbledore (@MikeMcC) replied 'cos I couldn't find it either!!
I can get this to work with VLC, but alack, not with Finale
Have a look at this discussion - it may help you: https://forum.keyboardmaestro.com/t/get-open-files-name/16811 more than I can
I spoke too soon.
None of those scripts are working for me
I expect the cause is the same as the bug I'm trying to work around in the first place!
Well you’re persistent- just like this bug! Maybe it’s time to report it to Finale support if you haven’t already?
