Hai,

I was wondering how to do something with Automator, and I'm not sure if it will work. Could I make an Automator script for my downloads folder, that when a file with a specified extension is put in it, it automatically moves the file somewhere else?

... If one falls flat on their face, at least they were moving in the right direction...

Forward...

Thanks, but the thread didn't explain HOW to do it, only that he wanted to do it.

I suppose that means I should get to work on that this weekend huh. Unless my buddy MacYukon beats me to it. Hint hint.

Seriously, the question is not whether it can be done but whether I can do it.
