    Hi, I've Installed fetch and using it in Mavericks with automator. As i've installed in lion, I'm having some problems. When I drag the fetch component upload files to automator, I receive an error, like this:
    Apple script error
    It's not possible to obtain <<class Boxo>> "Automator box>> of <<class view>> id821 of <<class view>> id 820...(-1728)

    Following by

    Não é possível obter |chosenfieldtags| of {port text hostame...

    Well, I think it could work if installed everything again, because it had worked once, even in Lion.
    How do I uninstall the tasks from automator?

    Thank you

    Hi,

    To uninstall Fetch's Automator actions you would need to uninstall Fetch -- drag it to the trash and empty the trash. Then you'd install a fresh copy of Fetch; you can download it from

    http://fetchsoftworks.com/fetch/download/Fetch_5.7.3.dmg

    Open the fresh copy of Fetch at least once, and Automator should take note of its actions.

    If that doesn't help, try holding down Option as you open Automator; that tells it to rescan for actions.

    Thanks,

    Hi Jim, thank you for your reply. Fortunately I didn´t have to uninstall fetch. It had looked like some instance of fetch was open and maybe this was causing some conflict. As I closed all open instances it had worked. Thank you

    I'm glad to hear it's working now. I've seen some odd errors from Automator, but usually they go away with some fiddling.
