Open Application

Postby QKurt » Wed Feb 05, 2020 3:47 pm

I am stuck with my scripting knowledge. Would like the following sequence with apple script/C1 script:
-Open Application C1
-Open existing cataloge
-Open exisiting workspace
-Open "Import Images" window

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Telling Capture One to open with the last used catalog and workspace is simple

Code: Select all
tell application "System Events" to tell application "Capture One 12" to activate

However, opening the Import dialog is tricky and unrelaible, because it involves the script controlling Capture One's menu, this tends to change with the localisation (language) and from version to version. Also the security enhancements in OSX 10.15 (and even 10.14) make this difficult to setup.

It would be far easier to designate a certain folder for imports, and use Applescript to import very image in that folder.
