I want to create a macro keyboard shortcut which would allow me to share by email the pdf currently open in the front window in Preview.
The problem is that Share-Mail does not appear in any menu or sub-menu.
My problem is that I can only trigger the Share → Mail command by clicking on the share icon, and then Mail.
I am trying to emulate the Share (icon) - Mail command.
thanks very much !
Since the Share icon is always in the same place, you can simply click relative to the front window.
- Click 160,35 relative to the top left corner of the front window.
- Insert Text by Typing “Mail%Return%”
Thank you Peter.
I play around with windows a lot, going from full to half screen.
I imagine that it would be a problem.
thanks very much
It should be possible to use an AppleScript with UI scripting to do this.
I’ve played around with it for a bit, but can’t quite make it work.
Hopefully, @ccstone will come along and help us out.
He’s the guru of AppleScript and UI scripting.
