I have just purchases the automator and im trying to figure out how the loop works. I created a watch me do action and placed the loop under it for automatically, use the original input, and stop after 3 minutes. When i press run the action playsback, bu only once and there is a loading sign near the results tab, why is it not playing back?

Help apprecited. Measly reps!

Im not a guru on Automator like some here, but if your having problems, and yet without a answer, maybe look into Apple Scripts to create a loop and use that in Auotmator ??

Just chucking it out there is all

Thanks for the sites, but that wont fix it. I found that the loop will only run a maximum of 2 times and than will stop, even though i had put repeat 5 times. Arnybody know why this is?
