Sure it does. I test every macro I post.
(Tested with Keyboard Maestro 7.0.4d2 on OSX 10.11.3.)
The pattern is case-sensitive though. To make it case insensitive:
In your first macro you’re searching to see if the entire path contains “file”.
That is potentially VERY dangerous.
Suppose one folder-name in the path is “file” or contains “file”:
~/yourUser/To Be Filed/Jpeg Folder/
You could wipe out a bunch of files you didn’t intend to delete.
You could use a regular expression to safely test against the full file-path, but it’s less complicated (and therefore safer) to test the file-name instead.
You have two tests:
B) fileName contains “file.wpd”
This is not wrong, but it’s more complicated than necessary. Also “contains” is a far cry from “starts with”.
By changing your regular expression slightly you can narrow that down to 1 test:
The asterisk indicates zero or more instead of the plus sign’s 1 or more.
My original pattern (
^file) should work. If it is in fact NOT working then something is very strange.
^file(.*)\.wpd$ is a much safer pattern to use if you want to restrict delete files to WordPerfect documents.
