Hello all. I am new to Applescript, and have a need that cannot be unique.
I want to open any finder window and see the contents arranged with the folders on top, or the folders first. Then I would like to sort the contents of the finder window by whatever criteria I want (“size”, “date modified”, “kind” ect.), but always have the folders on the top of the stack.
So the script should run like this:
if I choose to sort by “Date modified” the window would show the folders first, sorted by date modified, then the files sorted themselves by date modified.
If i choose to sort by name, it would show the folders first, sorted by name A-Z, then the files sorted themselves by name alphabetically A-Z. If i chose negative sort by name, it would show the folders first, sorted Z-A, then the files under them sorted themselves from Z-A.
and so on.
Please, do you know where the link is for an applescript that would do this, or do you have it yourself. I can’t imagine it would be that hard. I’m jsut new to this applsescript thing.
