Move Selected Files in Forklift?


I am novice user. I see there is standard macro "Move Selected Files in Finder". How can I amend this to move selected files in Forklift?

Hey @temata,

You can't.

ForkLift's AppleScript support is minimal, and most of what exists is broken.


Thanks - that save me hours of mucking around in the darkness! :slight_smile:

Hi there, reviving this thread - is this still true to the new Forklift 3?
I'd like to use Forklift as a Finder Replacement but I have a few Copy or Move KM macros that is dependent on Finder window and wonder if I can use the same macro on Forklift.

Hey @cherry,

While ForkLift 3 does have AppleScript support, it is very little and lame in the extreme.

This is the extent of it.

tell application "ForkLift"
   tell front window
      set folderURL to item 1 of (get displayedUrl of activeTabs)
      set frontWindowProperties to its properties
   end tell
end tell

Please spend a few minutes and ask the developers to improve upon this.


I have not spent much time with Forklift but a simple automator service can be used to move files to predefined location and seems to work with Forklift
