    I attempted to install an applescript that is here:

    http://oscargodson.com/posts/new-file-in-right-click-context-menu-for-mac.html The instructions are seemingly simple:

    Install is pretty simple.

    1. Download it here or got to the Github page at https://github.com/OscarGodson/New-File
    2. Double click on the "New File.workflow", and wait for Automator to open
    3. After Automator pops up simply press cmd+s and save it as "New File" and hit enter

    Anyway, it didn't work. I do not have a new "New File" on the menubar when I right click. I am installing this on the latest Yosemite.

    Should this work? Can anybody else on the same system get it to work?

    Thanks

    What system are you trying to install this script on?

    It is worthwhile to put your mac details as part of your signature, like satcomer does.
