    Hi there,

    I want to make a folder action that recognizes the file type I throw into it and puts that file into the corresponding subfolder.

    For instance, a Photoshop document dropped into this top level folder would go into the PSD subfolder and a Word Document would go into a Doc folder; an Illustrator file would go into the AI folder, and so on.

    I was able to get it to work with just one file type, but can't add subsequent file types for it to check and then move. It's as if it only checks once.

    Any help would be appreciated. I'm pretty new to the Automator thing.
