1. would be nice to be able to choose the depth of links to include in the archive.

  2. I’ve not been able to get this AppleScript to work. When ever I run it in Automator I get the error message:

    AppleScript Error System Events got an error: NSReceiverEvaluationScriptError: 4

    I have no clue how to trouble shoot this. A little help would be greatly appreciated.

  3. I assume GUI Scripting is active?

  4. I’m looking for a way to use Automator to go to a specific search engine page, and do a search. And to repeate the search for as many times as I specifcy… or possibly do a NEW search, with as many difrent search queries as I want.

    Is this possible?

  5. Do you mean, for example;

    • Go to google
    • Search for user-entered string
    • save results in HTML file, for ALL results ?

    I’d say yes, if could be done, but how would you detech how many pages there are, or select them ?

  6. I agree, the ability to choose link depth would be tremendous.

  7. But how do you automate converting safari webarchives to PDF files? How can you open all the webarchives and go to the print option to save as PDF?

    This is simple but I cant find it anywere.

    Very frustrating.

  8. Is there a way I could work this ‘Save Safari Web Archive’ into a workflow where it would do this for ALL open tabs in Safari? Like automatically loop through each tab, bring it to the front if necessary, save it to a webarchive, then go the the next tab, etc, for all tabs?

    Any leads would be most welcome…I am a total newbie to Automator and/or Applescript though. Not so up on writing my own applescript or automator actions, but I could maybe cobble together existing stuff if anyone knows of some pieces.

  9. Just uncovered this article on Daring Fireball, from May 2003:

    Is this still a limitation in Safari (i.e. no script access to Safari’s tabs)?
