Persistent Prompt With List

I have a macro that presents the user with a list of files for selection. As a refinement I'd like the list to persist in a window, once a file was selected in case the wrong file was selected or a diffeent file fit the users needs more rather than re-runing the macro again. I've not found any documentation about this. Maybe I'm thinking about this incorrectly.

How would you make it so the macro wouldn't have to be run a second time to have the chance to select a different file from the list. The list might have up to 50 items (files) in it. Only one file at a time can be selected.

Hey Will,

I can't think of any way to do this.

Hey @peternlewis – how tough would it be to add a token for the last used search string of the Prompt with List action?

That would allow a user to resume where they left off (more or less) by making the initial search string a variable.


Its already on the todo list.
