1. I’m very impressed by this action! I was desperately trying to convert safari archives (a few hundred) to word format without messing up the layout. Everything else I tried failed, including my own pathetic scripting attempts. I would like to bake you cookies!

  2. This is a great utility for large files. I used it on 485 files that I needed to covert to Text and it worked great. Saved me hours of file open and resaving! Thanks ARMIN!

  3. I’ve found this action really helpful, but it would get 5 stars if it had an option to save the file to it’s orginal folder. I use it to convert many Safari files to text docs, but I can only send the converted ones to the same place and would rather they stay sorted and go back to where they were. It’s great, though, that the action keeps the same name. Really helpful.
    Please consider the above option of ‘saving to original folder’ for the next, and hopefully soon, improvement.

  5. I just get an Applescript error message. How do you get this to work?

  6. That’s ridiculously useful. I just used it to convert a whole folder of Word documents into nice Apple-made HTML files (which will now get some grep-cleaning with some BBEdit automator steps). Thanks for sharing!
