1. Are these two workflows Finder workflows (for the contextual menu), drag the file and drop onto them or what? How does one use them?

    Thanks in advance for the info.

  2. Hi ChemBob, this is an action not a workflow. So, to use it, you need to add it to an Automator workflow. For example, drag the files whose names you want to store into an empty Automator workflow, then drag the Store Original Name action below it. Then run the workflow and it should save your filenames.

  3. Ben, thanks! I should have been able to figure that out myself but for some reason I didn’t. Too much blogging maybe, LOL.

  4. is it possible to drop a file into a smart folder and have that file be tagged with the folder name – the folder name being placed in the spotlight comment? If so. how would I create such a thing?

    warm regards, stuart in hong kong

  5. any chance of getting the source code for this action, or a new version that removes the “original name>” text.
