    Hey guys:

    I am new to Automator, and even though I have been tinkering around with it for about an hour, I can't seem to create an action.

    What I want to do is have Automator automatically take the contents of a specific folder on my hard drive, print the contents of the folder (usually PDFs), then delete the files. I use dropbox, so when I place a pdf into this folder from my laptop on the go, it would be nice to come home to it printed, and no longer in the folder taking up space.

    Is this possible?

    This would be fantastic!

    Hey, I know this is an old topic, but this is a great idea. Is there anyone that knows how to do this?
