    Hi folks,

    I'm looking to somehow set up a script or automator workflow in order to open all the applications I need to use in my PDF workflow. The applications are FreeHand, Enfocus Instant PDF, Acrobat Distiller and Transmit.

    This'll save me some click time and save my skin when working to a deadline.

    Can anybody point me in the right direction? :)


    Cheers,
    Robert

    Shell script

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    # save in myscript.sh and give exec rights with finder's info panel
    open "/Applications/Photoshop.app" & open "/Applications/Enfocus Instant PDF.app" & open "/Applications/MyApp.app" &
    Just prefix the name of the application with .App and add it in an open "thingie" & construct.

    Cheers,

    ps: You can even create a quicksilver trigger that launches this script.
