Here’s a simple script I wanted to share today: a quick way to get to the Batch Export window in ScreenFlow. My filter is always the same: Do I do this thing frequently enough to justify scripting it? Here, the answer is, again, “Yes!”
There is not much to write home about here. (I put comments in the script):
- Since ScreenFlow is not addressable via AppleScript, I used the
do shell scriptcommand to open the app.
- I created a keyboard shortcut for the
File > Batch Export…menu in ScreenFlow and used System Events to call it using
- As mentioned in the comments, adjust that line of code to fit your desired keyboard shortcut. Since I set mine to
Control-B, the line reads:
keystroke "b" using control down
That’s it! Again…not your massive script here, but one I use a lot and that saves me a little time. If I can avoid driving the mouse on my screen, my life is better. It lives happily in the Script menu on my menu bar, alongside other useful Finder scripts.
