Got this script :
set destpath to “/Volumes/JobFolder/” as string
set theFile to destpath & “123888ferr”
tell application “TextEdit”
make new document
save document 1 in theFile
close document 1
It makes a blank text edit file for me - but the resulting file is named as “123888ferr.rtf”
How can I get it to save the file without “.rtf” ?
I’ve tried a few things - but so far without success.
Grateful for your help.
You’ll have to rename it after saving:
set this to choose file
tell application "Finder"
set name of this to "test"
I must say I have doubts as to its usefulness…
why not goto Finder/Preferences/Advanced and disable “Show all filename extensions”
Maybe he wants other files’ extentions.
Anyway, I agree that renaming it in finder would work. If you have 10.4 Tiger, you could make AppleScript click the “Hide Extention” button.
