I am trying to combine a folder of text docs into one document and I am trying it with automator.
Here is my workflow, which runs and finishes, but ht document it creates is blank.
Ask for Finder Items (here is where I choose the folder with the files)
Combine Text Files
New Text File (I give it a name here and location)
Set Contents of TextEdit Document (I choose by appending)
when I view results-it creates and names the new file, but nothing is in it?
Yeah, I am finding that the Combine Text Files also does not work.
However there is an alternative way of doing it:
You will have to purchase the Text Automator Action Pack from here:
As I use the Read Text File action in order to accomplish this.
You can also change it to a service so that you can right click on the file and select the service and it will do the whole folder.
Let me know if you need any other help.
This is great!! Thank you.
I had forgotten about this, but will use for future stuff like this!
