Forum Question: Macmost Now 488 question on folder actions

I find that after setting up about 5 folder actions for sorting out files according to title wording, it only works for the first file I drag and drop. The next files all stay where I drag them even if they contain the keyword. I have tried the Mac support forums but they are too techinical for me. Can you please help?

    It sounds like you are setting up the actions but not assigning them to the folders properly. Hard to tell without being there, but check that part of the set-up very carefully.
    Try doing it with just one action first. Make sure you get that working before doing the other 4.

      Thanks Gary. I will try it when I get back home from work. The only confusing part from your video for me was the ” order of the actions is important” part. I have no idea why order would be important inside the folder actions setup window.
