Launching an alias file type

Is there a way to launch a file that's an alias to another file? I currently have a macro that triggers an action "Open a File, Folder..." and this works when I provide a path to a standard file but not to an alias -- seems to be regardless of the application used to open it.

Is the information for launching an alias file from this prior thread no longer viable?

Can you post an example? Because this is working for me (KM 11.0.3, macOS 14.5)

Note that you do have to paste/type in the path -- using the open/save dialog to add it will resolve the alias to the actual target.
