  2. Not at this time chomi, but that is an interesting idea. I’ll see about a new version.

  4. Thanks! this is awesome, however i seem to be getting the same error over and over; “the operation could not be completed because there is already an item with that name”, its the first time i try to install it, and im a bit confused…. any ideas what I’m doing wrong??

  5. I have used the Replace Date Holder action for months on myibok G4. It’s been invaluable at our office. I’ve now gotten a Macbook Pro; which has – as you all know – an Intell processor… now when I open my saved workflowes that contain the ‘Replace Date Holder’ action, Automator tells me that the workflow [i]might[/i] not work properly because the action is not made for this processor. What’s up with this message? Will it not work? It seems to work… but when you open the workflow in automator the ‘Replace Date Holder’ action isn’t visible!

    very strange…

  7. With OS X 10.6 Build 10A 394, Automator require an Universal version of Replace Date Placeholders.
    Do you plan it ?
    Thanks again for this very useful automator action I used for 4 years now :-)
