How Prevent An Action From Working Under Certain Conditions?

I set up several macros (with the same basic formula for each) that move files to specific destinations if triggered in Finder.

I want to prevent the action in the event the file has a red or yellow tag. It's gotta be simple, but it's over my head.

Here's an example of one of these macros.

Appreciate any suggestions!

Hey Chuck,

Yeah, it's pretty simple – but it's NOT over your head – you just need to know what the relevant puzzle pieces are.

Dissect my example, and you'll know how next time.

This took just a little more doing than I thought it would, because ==there's NOT a File-Attribute condition for the IF-THEN-ELSE action.== So a couple of extra steps were necessary.

@peternlewis – have you thought about adding the above?

Not really, but I'll note it down to consider.


Done for the next version.
