I’m trying to figure out how to do the following:
Every time a file is added to an Articles folder on my Mac desktop, drag the file into Zotero (my citation manager) so that it’s added. Zotero doesn’t seem to have an option to watch folders. If I don’t add the file quickly, this folder tends to become a black hole on articles I never read.
Might the be possible to do with Keyboard Maestro?
Yes, absolutely. The KM method is less user-friendly than Hazel, but totally works. Your trigger is under FOLDER:
Then I run For statement, which will be applied to every item in that folder (including any files that previously existed prior to the new file being added).
I run an if statement on each item before deciding whether to move the file to a different folder. but you wouldn’t have to. Just know that in this For Each statement above, the variable name of each file is the variable “Path,” so in the Move File action, that’s what I call as the variable.
