My first Problem: For some reason the Applescript Editor is not able to pick up events when recording from Keynote'09 (I already turned on the acessibility options). The Editor stays blank for all actions I perform. It works perfectly for things like Finder though.
The resulting problem: I still want to tell Keynote to export presentations so I made this Script:
set thisFile to "/Users/ks/Desktop/test.key" tell application "System Events" tell application "Keynote" activate open thisFile set frontmost to true click menu item "Export…" of menu 1 of menu bar item "File" of menu bar 1 end tell end tell
This script will choke on the last line (the one with "click menu item") when being saved saying: "expected end of line but found class name" and "menu item" will be highlighted. I don't know how to fix that. Any suggestions? I see code all over the web doing the exact same thing. Is this a version Issue because its Keynote '09?
