Fetch with Automator variables (5 posts)

    Does anyone know how, or even if, I can use automator variables with the Fetch rename replace text function?
    I'd need to construct a file name using a variable and an extension for the find part and then the same variable but different extension for the the replace part.

    Hi,

    Fetch's Automator actions do not currently use Automator variables (if they used Automator variables they couldn't be used on Mac OS X 10.4).

    If you just need to replace one extension with another you can use the Rename Fetch Items action's Replace Text option to replace (for instance) ".abc" with ".xyz".

    So you're saying that I can use Fetch rename, replace text, to rename the extension.

    Yes, exactly.

    Great. I'll try that again. It wasn't successful on my first attempt though. Thanks for the prompt reply. Will let you know how it turns out.
