    What is it?
    A simple widget for making a Capture folder from the OS copy/paste clipboard. Useful for grabbing any source of text (e.g. an Excel cell) and making a Capture folder from it.

    What does it do?
    On run, the app will:

  • Take whatever is on the paste board
  • Display a dialog of whatever, allowing you to edit it (if you maybe copied something wrong)
  • Click “Ok”, and the app will make a new Capture folder with the result as the name of the folder
  • Irrespective if you like naming things with “.” as part of your naming, or if you include something by mistake – there are certain characters which are defined by Apple as illegal or ill-advised if encountered in certain combinations in folder names. In these cases the app will substitute illegals for “_” (underscore) for the sake of stability.
  • Who is it for?
    If you work from long shot lists in Excel this may save you from killing yourself.

    How do I use it?
    Once installed from the dmg, just click-to-run. I suggest though using this one on a shortcut.

    It is designed in a way to act just like a script and so can be installed and shortcut as per the article here or you can shortcut to the app itself as per the Monogram workflow.


    Install notes

    Run the .dmg and drag drop the app to applications

    Once installed to applications, I recommend referencing the install in the dock for easy access. Drag the app from applications to the dock to do this. You can also install it to Capture One’s scripts menu as per the article here – but be sure to copy the installed application reference – not the .dmg.

    After running the .dmg and installing, on first run you will see this dialog warning that this is a script file and needs to interact with another app/s to work. These are normal for script applets. The app is otherwise code signed and stapled in accordance with Apple guidelines. Press OK for any dialogs encountered.


    Using the app

    1. Copy some text from a source – this can be Excel, textEdit, web or just about anything that is considered text when copied to the OS clipboard.

    2. Run the app – either invoked from shortcut or from the dock. The text is presented in a dialog in case you copied some bum text or want to edit it.

    3. Hit return or press ok – the text will be passed as a new Capture folder to C1.
