As a first step, How can I get the x/y location of the file which is selected in Finder?
Here is my overall goal:
I use MS Outlook on my Mac. I generally do NOT use the mouse. This will work in MacMail, but not in Outlook.
I want to be able to activate finder
Locate a file in my finder window
Copy file from finder
Switch to outlook mail message
Paste file to outlook mail message
This works with Mac Mail, but does not work for Outlook because MS Outlook has a bug–the paste command pastes the location of the file rather than simulating a drag/drop of the file into the mail message.
So, I will have an active finder window with a file selected and an Outlook Message Window with a mail message already started.
All from the keyboard, I want to
Press cmd-C [or a KM macro] to copy the file from finder (OR simulate a click/drag)
Press cmd-Tab [to switch to Outlook email message]
Press cmd-V [or a KM macro] to paste the file (or simulate the Drop)
I have looked at the mouse commands, but do not see a way to click where the current file is selected in finder to initiate the click/drag.
I also am not sure if the macro will keep dragging once the active window has changed so that I can then execute the drop onto the mail message window.
Thank you for your help!
