    My Shortcuts app is different than what you show,
    Is there an up-dated version ?
    (I’m using the version from the Apple app store),’
    When I add the 3rd script (Media), then Width, it’s not followed by a “From” query, ?

    area49: This video is brand new, so it is using the most recent version. Which version of iOS do you have? Play around with it and you’ll figure it out, I’m certain.

    AP: I don’t have a packaged-up version of it, so it is probably easiest for you to build it yourself. Just use the image above as a quick guide. Should only take a few minutes.

    Scott: Sorry, not sure what could be different. Is your iOS up-to-date? Play around with it and experiment.
