    May be the title doesn't explain, but my problem is this, i've been working with automator for a while, and it's awsome, but there are some things that i still can't do. The deal is that I'm working on my thesis and there are some experiments i need to repeat with diferent inputs, for that i have many folder with similar numeric names, and I need to copy certain file and folder in each folder because the folder already has the inputs, is there any way to make automator to choose many folder as destination?

    Thanks


    PS. English misspeling due to my non first language :p

    I suppose you could make a sequence of actions that copy the files to the intended folders. If that doesn't work, AppleScript is your best friend - I know it can do this.

    Mmmm.... there are almost 100 folders, so making an action that big isn't the idea. Yeah i know applescript rules but is not as easy as automator
